Wi-Fi BlackBerry coming to Nextel, according to Dan Hesse

 

Yeah, this one sounds pretty strange to us as well. Apparently Sprint’s new CEO, Dan Hesse, let slip at his CTIA 2008 keynote that Nextel would be the recipient of a Wi-Fi-equipped BlackBerry by the end of this year. Last we heard, the only BlackBerry available on the ailing iDEN network was the veritably ancient 7100i, which doesn’t even feature a trackball, let alone a feature as advanced as Wi-Fi. That said, we’ve seen stranger things go down, and a modern smartphone would certainly give Nextel a bit of a shot in the arm. Again, we’re not making any promises here, but all complaints can now be directed at Mr. Forsee (though wading through a pile marked "Spring Complaints" might take you a little while).
