    Storm 9520

    Storm 9520 will have WiFi, 3G and will work on All US Cariers except for Verizon! Verizon does not support GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA 1.8 Mbit/s/HSDPA 3.6 Mbit/s

    Its just a mater of time as to when it will be released.

    i would be very surprised if RIM made these phones with wifi chips and not the rest vzw has just disabled it imo, but i could be (and probably am) wrong.

    Yes, it would be nice to have Wifi, but you loose the GPS chip in order to have the Wifi option. I actually use my VZNav all the time, and, at least in my area (Detroit, MI and Metro) the EVDO network is very strong so I can do without Wifi, but not without GPS. This has been covered numerous times on Crackberry and some other BB forums.....you have either/or, but not both. Not sure why RIM can't cram both chips into the housing....(look at the Samsung Omnia or the iPhone - please no flaming, just making a point). Rogers is GSM, so you could probably unlock it and use it on T-Mobile and AT&T, but not on Verizon. Even though Verizon has started letting "outside" phones onto their network in 2008, they are VERY few and select, AND they MUST be approved, so this definitely would not work on Big Red's network.

    I haven't read anything about it on Crackberry, but the 8820 and Bold have both GPS and WiFi so it's not impossible.

    well for example the storm, rim agreed to make the storm exclusive to verizon from the get go. so when they were making it verizon said nope not gonna have wifi, cause they like money and they would rather have you use there data plans rather then wifi

    That may be true, BUT, they also have the form-factor for it. The Storms "guts" only have enough space for one OR the other. Maybe the next version storm, will have smaller chips in it, which will allow for both. I know my IPhone 3G had WiFi, GPS, and 3G, so I know it's possible, it's just that it wasn't intended on the storm to have both, so they didn't design it that way. Only a hardware revision will allow for the WiFi, GPS, AND 3G, so for now we can have either have GPS/3G-EVDO, or WiFi/3G or WiFi/GPS sans 3G.
