Basically, the new Blackberry is almost identical with the regular 8800 (same size, weight, processor, display, memory and battery), the main exception being the added Wi-Fi. The new smartphone will retail at AT&T for $300 and will come with a 2-year service contract.

The contract starts with a $60 900-minute basic cellphone service, but quickly might add up several other services, such a Internet ($30), corporate email access($45), push-to-talk ($10) or satellite radio and MusicID ($13). And the list might go on, depending on your preferences. All in all, the monthly fee may revolve around $150 and $200.
