RIM CEO Jim Balsillie told investors that the company was finally ready to introduce Wi-Fi earlier this week. He said users can expect a device with both cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity in the second half this year. The company has previously released a Wi-Fi only device with VOIP for use in corporate environments, but was waiting to release a dual-mode consumer focused device. Most other smartphone manufacturers except Palm have released combined cellular / Wi-Fi devices.

Don't get too excited
Now that I have a regular phone. (LG-vx9900)...
RIM is AWESOME
Potentially, you could get a BB with Wifi, possibly even able to make VoIP calls, in addition to traditional BB features, software, being able to load memory cards, a camera...I would be able to get rid of my Palm Pilot, and I could use that instead of my Discman or MP3 player.
This would also be great to access my company's intranet while I'm in the office, something I could never do over any cellular network's data services. Couple that with VoIP calls on wifi networks, and we have a winner! Companies could also set up a secure connection over wifi so the phones they may need to provide for their employees won't...
