There have been BlackBerry devices with WiFi capabilities for quite some time.
It's certainly not the first one that was approved yesterday.

I don't know if it was the first aproved, but if released, it will be the first with wi-fi.

The 7270 has been released for a couple years, however this is the first model that actually combines a GSM device with Wi-Fi capabilities and GAN/UMA integration. They are claiming the form-factor to be the 8820 model.

It will. As for the 8320 vs 8820, PhoneScoop is reporting it's the 8800 series Wi-Fi device (8820). You can have a look in some of the reports from the FCC:

https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/...ericSearch.cfm
Grantee Code: L6A
Date Range: 07/01/2007 - 07/10/2007

The product model listed is RBG41GW, which is a model number for the 8800, oddly enough. The battery used in the tests was a BAT-1105-001, which is the one used in the 8800 (the 8300 has a different battery).

I wasn't actually expecting the 8820 to be released, as TMO never once mentioned anything about it. But this does make sense, sort of.

At first I was disappointed because it wasn't the 8320. But I might actually scoop this up if it does drop for T-Mobile. I went to an AT&T store and picked up the Curve joint. It is nice but for me it is almost too small (if there is such a thing). I guess I have gotten used to the heft of the 8700g, and need something that, for me, feels weighty almost. Maybe I just need more time with the Curve.
