BlackBerry 8820 launches on Orange in Spain

Well looky here…RIM has gone ahead and dropped its Wi-Fi equipped BlackBerry 8820 on Spanish soil. Showing up on the Orange network, the BlackBerry 8820 is pretty much as expected, sporting Wi-Fi in addition to quad-band GSM coverage, EDGE data connection, and built in GPS — pretty much par for the course by now. Of interest, however, is that the device does include UMA support out of the box. Its intended for use on Orange’s Spanish UMA network, called “Unico Empresas," but certainly indicates that T-Mobile@Home compatibility isn’t too far from our grasp. Hit the link for the full press release, and could someone please get on the phone with AT&T? We want this one ASAP!
