What does this mean?  Well, while the details may not be completely clear and one hundred percent correct, but it shows that it will have a GPRS/WLAN radio stack, a first for BlackBerry devices, as well as the customary support for voice-activated dialing and push-to-talk capabilities.  Unfortunately, one feature it does not list is the camera, so let's rule out this device for that 8800 series CameraBerry model.. for now, of course.

No word on release date.
