T-Mobile 8320 Sept 07! Wi-Fi Confirmed!

Original Article Here ---> T-Mobile 8320 Sept 07! Wi-Fi Confirmed! - RIM Blackberry Forums - Pinstack.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------




From our source:
"T-Mobile's 8320 WILL have WIFI capability! However, we'll have to wait until around September"

8320 rumored specs:
# 3.2 megapixel camera (or better)
# Flash improvement and 6x digital zoom
# 3.5 mm Headset Jack
# External microSD slot
# Wi-Fi capable
# 64MB of memory
# Streaming media support
# 4.5 hours of talk time/17 days of standby
# Stereo Bluetooth
# Windows Media DRM & MTP
# Black or semi Black to be available at later date.
# Top and rear loudspeaker
# Motion Lock
# High speed USB
# Improved build quality

Edit: As mentioned above this is "From our source" - one of them. The photo and specs were cut and paste of an email tip sent to us. Although previous posts on PinStack indicate that the 8320's only serious new feature will be WiFi over the 8300... the above photo does reveal a noticable differnce in the camera's design and thus our decision to post the specs listed in the email we received. Thus far there's not been any inacurate rumors posted from us; a quick search of past rumors originating from PinStack is proof enough. However, bear in mind the definition of rumors.

You seem to hate the 8300 with a passion. I don't think it will make you happy if you are that discontent with the 8300. Sounds like you may be looking for a different phone altogether.

Sucks for those people who jump ship to AT&T from TMO just to get the curve.

If the only difference is wifi, then I'll be sticking to my 8300 Curve. Wifi is such a drain on battery life. Besides wifi on a Blackberry is something that was not needed.
More memory and a better camera would have been more useful in my opinion!

wifi would be a bonus to those interested in the UMA capabilities



however to browse the web, is a waste in my books, especially if you have a data plan...

I'll definitely take one, can't wait for this to come out. I don't need the GPS, even though it would've been nice to have but hey.

No, I actually enjoy the phone overall, but I think the having to manually restart it once every other day has really irritated me. Also the dust.

I will wait at least one year after the release date of the 8800 and 8300 in order to pick either out. It seems that there are build and quality issues that always seem to get sorted out. I read some initial reviews of the 8700g and saw that the keypad felt loose. By the time I had gotten mine this was not an issue.

Sweet baby jesus can we just release this thing already, the 3.2mp addition to the Wifi just is icing on the cake.

Hallelujah! I knew you would come through Tmo! And on my b-day too! Can't beat that. I'm almost just as hyped about the "external" micro slot as I am about the wifi! SUCH a pain restarting the device each time you want to swap cards.

The rumors I heard were November so I'm not getting my hopes up for September. If it happens, then that's all the better.

I agree on the 2mp camera. I was also told the 8820 has the highest capacity battery with more power than the 8800 so use of WiFi should not be a problem. When/if I used WiFi, I would only turn it on when required and off when done.

2mp would be fine -- it's really about getting a different camera part in there, which is hopefully of higher quality than the existing 1.3mp ones we're using. My 8100 camera is pretty good sometimes (*sometimes*) but it's not on par with a 1.3mp that Nokia uses. I take tons of pics with my 8100 to catch the randomness, better quality - not bigger size - is what matters...
