It was just a few weeks ago that I was ranting about RIM ever adding Wi-Fi tethering. Engadget snagged a slide from a BlackBerry Storm 3 training deck showing off the upcoming devices feature in all its blurriness.
- BlackBerry 6
- Webkit Browser
- 512MB with SD card support up to 32GB
- 5MP camera with updated UI
- World Edition
- Wi-Fi 802.11n
- 3G Mobile Hotspot (Coming soon!!!)
That last little tidbit is what really caught my eye. RIM really needs to add mobile hotspot functionality to stay in the game and it looks like they have realized that. Hopefully “Coming Soon” means next month? I truly hope that Mobile Hotspot functionality is coming native to all BlackBerry 6 devices.
Engadget also pointed out that if you strain your eyes on this slide you will notice that the last line shows an "___ember" month release date. Things are looking good for RIM this upcoming holiday season! Anybody else excited?
