New Wi-Fi Enabled 8820 Coming Soon?

blackberry 8800 The people over at Pinstack have been all over this rumor for the last few days.

Will there be a WiFi enabled 8800 Blackberry coming out soon? Apparently so.

It seems that the good folks at RIM have been talking about this for a while and we at CrackBerry are pretty confident the new Wi-Fi enabled 8820 will be coming out in the summer.

“For some of us BlackBerry users, news of a WiFi 88xx BlackBerry is always more than welcome. Although, the 8800 stacked against the 8700 features a ton of new features even without Wifi. However, for me it willl take WiFi to pull me away from my 8700g.” says Pinstack’s Editor. “This will greatly enhance my away-from-desk but within office building productivity. Especially when using Remote Desktop, VNC, Telnet and SSH applications that I currently use over GPRS. Also here in Antigua we have island wide WiFi service where I can pull over and log on to the WiFi service with 75% island coverage.

When using Idokorro's Remote Desktop for servers and Telneting to routers that I maintain it will be a dream. Not to mention when traveling; being able to work via WiFi Hotspots will be a huge plus for Network Engineers and IT Techs. Most 8700 users won't need WiFi and so you can pick up the 8800 next week and it will be a great upgrade. For the record, the 8800 originally should have launched WITH WiFi but RIM ran into issues with this feature and so there will be two launches. The first 8800 (w/o WiFi) and the 8820 (w/ WiFi).

The expected dates for the 8820 release being May/June 07' hopefully sooner and esp before the launch of Apple's iPhone. Although, in fact they shouldn't be compared but in actuality the iPhone does affect RIM's stock. Possibly less in future as the corporate world begins to learn the different Market targets of both devices. Attached is a comparison chart of the 8820 against the 8700. So far, the only additional feature over the 8800 is WiFi.”

Have CrackBerrys Made it Easier to Lie?

A British pollster says it is easier to be ‘economical with the truth’ when using BlackBerry.

More than four out of five people admit to telling little white lies at least once a day says a survey conducted by UK pollsters. The preferred way of being "economical with the truth" is to use technology such as cell phones, texts and e-mails. “Techno-treachery” was widespread apparently, with nearly 75 percent of people saying gadgets like BlackBerrys made it easier to fib. More than half of respondents said using BlackBerrys made them feel less guilty when telling a lie than doing it face to face. The workplace was the favorite location for fibbing, with 67 percent of the 1,487 respondents admitting that they had lied at work.

The study was conducted on behalf of a financial-services company.

However, workplaces were not the only arenas in which dishonesty was happening. More than 40 percent said they had lied to their family or partner too. People admitted to lying about buying new clothes or the cost of them, how good someone looked in something, how much they had eaten and drunk, and how much they weighed.

Before we all get on the whole society is going to hell in a handbasket bandwagon it should be noted that most of the respondents said they told lies with the best intentions and to spare others' feelings.

So, next time someone BlackBerrys you and tells you that tie looks great, maybe take it with a grain of salt.
