RIM to add WiFi to at least one BlackBerry device

Research in Motion revealed to eWeek that it plans to integrate WiFi into one of its devices before the end of the year. RIM says it is working on some network elements associated with fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), namely handoff between cellular and WiFi networks. The likely carrier that will offer the device is T-Mobile, which is supposed to become the first operator to deliver FMC service in the U.S.
