RIM has made my dreams come true, hear that Danger, with the official announcement of the Wi-Fi enabled 8820. It’s also the thinnest Blackberry to date with built-in GPS, media player functionality via Roxio Media Manager, A2DP/AVRCP and a microSD/SDHC memory slot that can support up to 32GB. The 8820 can also tout itself as the first dual-mode BB that combines EDGE/GPRS/GSM and Wi-Fi connectivity over 802.11 a/b/g with security protocols that include WEP, WPA, WPA2, and IPSec-based software allowing for VPN access. Did I mention that it supports UMA? Can it get any better? Am I wetting myself as I write this? YES! Goodbye Sidekick3, Hello 8820. I might bite the bullet and switch to AT&T. Gah.
