Default Any BB's with WiFi?

Please Login to Remove!

I really like my 7100t but the one thing I wish it had is wifi. Do any BB's have wifi or will any be coming out?

The Blackberry 7270 has WiFi... but no cellular radio... you get one or the other, not both.

cd.

Yes the very rare 7270. I've never heard of anyone here that had one. But it will jump onto Wifi if you are in range and log into a Voice-over-IP service.

Which is nice... For example you are in a hotel and you get on through the free wifi, (if your company allows it) you can probably log in and have your phone calls from your desk routed to your blackberry automatically.

How does that work - does Blackberry have it's own VOIP/Telco facility? If I have an existing cellular number, would it work over VOIP?

No and no.
