Default adding wifi to the pearl?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know of any piece of hardware that you can attach to your pearl so that you can use the pearl as a wifi device? That really would have been a good feature on the pearl..don't know why they didn't add it... Anyway, someone mentioned to me that there might be a piece of hardware you can "plug in" to your pearl (like a wireless modem) that you can use to use your pearl in a wifi environment...any ideas?

cheers

There's no way to configure the device to use it though.
