I'm not jumping down people's throats. I'm not even the least bit upset actually. I said the rep obviously has no idea what he's talking about, or he's flat out lying. Ask anyone around here - heck just read the rest of this thread, I'm not saying anything anyone else hasn't already said.

Rumor has it, key word here is 'Rumor', that the 8120 will be coming out Sept/Oct/Nov. That to me, means towards the end of the year.

I could care less about wifi, give me GPS on the 8300 and I will pay handsomely for it!

Sadly, I'd say that even if 'a' Carrier is testing a particular model with
'certain' features, I wouldn't be too sure every feature they have on the
test unit is actually going to make it to the market launch.

If the admins at boygeniusreport.com take a look at their logs from this afternoon, I suspect they will find some interesting entries. The entries might even relate to this thread.

If it has GPS and/or WiFi it's an 83xx but not an 8300. An 8300 is an 8300. It's just like every other BB model out there -- models with the same numbers are identical. If features are added (or if it's CDMA) it's an entirely different model.

You guys are missing the major point here with having the BB with Wi-fi. The major advantage would be to log on to your wi-fi at work, home or where ever you have wi-fi access to use the tmo@hotspot feature. Whenever you are logged on to this your minutes/usage is free and unlimited. This is a major plus for those who have poor reception at home (like I do) and maybe at work in big office building with concrete walls (i do sometimes). So ++ reception and ++ on free minutes makes it very necessary feature to have in the future for me. Although I can't say much, I have beta tested tmo@hotspot and I am very excited for a BB wi-fi phone.

What does he owe me when it comes out without it?

Not if you are a business customer and on certain business contracts (CBE, CCDA).

lol @ business customer. trust me i called in the past to see how much we save if we switch from a family plan to a business customer for our company...it costs more!!! for example, while we playing $30/month for a bis plan...business customer have to pay $50/month!!! and internation blackberry plan cost $150/month!!! business customer is just a fancy name for charging u more for the same service partner.

cingular is now a rip off..i dont know cuz of greedy at&t. cingular was good before at&t. at&t is gonna run cingular to the ground...mark my word.
