I'm still not sure what the real hoopla about WiFi BB is about. Besides being able to instant message faster (which isn't a huge problem via EDGE anyway), what do you really get? I don't browse internet pages on my BB b/c its so freakin annoying. The webpages i do check out are optimized for bb browsing (mostly text), so EDGE works fine. Am I missing something?
From what I've been researching and reading from other posts, the WiFi will improve call service too. The UMA will allow people to take advantage of Public WiFi networks to make phone calls. So if you have poor service in certain areas, but have good WiFi coverage (ie your house or employer's building), phone reception will be handed off to the WiFi rather than getting 1 or 2 bars of cellular reception. However, I am still a BB noob, but this is what I've learned so far, and this is my main reason to buy a Blackberry with WiFi.
