Wi-Fi coming to a BlackBerry near you? RIM

Well, well, well...what do we have here? According to the kids over at Phone Scoop, the FCC has approved a Wi-Fi-enabled (802.11 a/b/g) BlackBerry device, which is a great sign since Research in Motion has been talking about adding this feature for more than a year now. A few other details about the device: it's said to be a GSM/EDGE smart phone with Bluetooth, a microSD slot, and it resembles the RIM BlackBerry 8800 and BlackBerry 8830 in the design department. No word on carrier or availability, but RIM CEO Jim Balsillie has said the company would release a Wi-Fi-equipped model by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more.

Note: For those of you thinking I've made an egregious grammar error in my blog title, it's actually just my way of paying tribute to one of my favorite time wasters, I Can Has Cheezburger?
