AT&T, Inc. announced that the Blackberry Model 8820, the first BlackBerry with connectivity for both Wi-Fi and cellular networks, will be available for sale starting on September 20th.
The 8820 will reportedly allow users to move from Wi-Fi hot spots into WAN wireless connections using AT&T’s EDGE network. The Blackberry 8820 will be available starting today for the surprisingly low price of US$300, after rebate.
Monthly service plans in the U.S. start at $30 per month for a voice contract, and $45 per month for unlimited corporate e-mail access via RIM’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry 8820 has a full QWERTY keyboard, a trackball navigation system and a 320 x 240 display.
The AT&T version supports AT&T Mobile Music and Wi-Fi over 802.11a/b/g.
