AT&T launches WiFi-enabled BlackBerry 8820

AT&T has launched the WiFi-enabled BlackBerry 8820, which will retail for $299 with a two-year agreement. Despite many rumors that AT&T had planned to "neuter" the handset's GPS capabilities to somehow aid the iPhone's appeal, the BB 8820 has both WiFi and GPS capabilities. The phone will become commercially available tomorrow. The phone features Xm Satellite Radio, eMusic, push-to-talk and AT&T Mobile Music.
