    BlackBerry Essex on the way with WiFi - BlackBerry Blast!

    If sprint mandating wifi, does this possibly mean that somewhere down the line 4g will be implemented, or is it just to encourage users to use wifi to lighten the date load and keep it balanced>

    Probably just because users want it and it helps there data network and extends usefulness of the device outside normal coverage areas.

    Let alone it saves sprint the need for adding more cells due to incresed traffic. All come down to $$$$

    no. Wifi and 4g are not the same. Wifi is 2400mhz and 4g is 2500-2700

    Yes 4g is coming! Sadly not on the Pre.

    New smartphones coming down the pipeline will require having WiFi integrated. This is one reason the Tour is relaunching next year with WiFi built in. I made more sense to launch it now without it and add it later in a relaunch than to wait for it. But there have been rumors since before the Tour was released it would happen, nothing official but RIM isn't known for keeping things under wraps particularly well.
