FCC filing confirms BlackBerry Wi-Fi

BlackBerry Wi-Fi confirmed

A filing recently approved by the FCC has confirmed the existence of the first BlackBerry with Wi-Fi, most likely the Curve 2 (seen right), based on its similarities. Connection options should come in the form of 802.11a/b/g, which is discerned by the 5.4, 5.8 and 2.4GHz frequencies evaluated in FCC tests. Bluetooth and a microSD slot are other confirmed features.

Wi-Fi may be a critical addition to the BlackBerry phones, which have consistently lacked the option despite its presence in other high-end phones, most recently the Apple iPhone. Users should thus be able to access mail and the web without costly cellular data fees. [via Phone Scoop]
