I wonder how long Rim is going to keep teasing us with no wifi support. I would pay big $$ for an all-in-one Blackberry. I want my bb to have GPS, camera and wifi please!

The 8820 has wifi. It is a GSM device so VZW/Sprint are SOL. I could care less though. EVDO is more than enough speed to get emails and I am hardly ever out of a service area.

I doubt that WiFi will make much of a difference. Maybe if you surf the web a lot, but not with email.

Nope. As others have already pointed out if you want WiFi then the 8820 is what you're looking for.
