BlackBerry Storm to blow in next week - minus Wi-Fi

HSDPA sufficient for you lot, says Vodafone

SANS - Survey on application security programs

RIM's BlackBerry Storm will finally arrive in Vodafone’s UK stores on 14 November, but fans wanting Wi-Fi would be wise to delay their purchase.

RIM's BlackBerry Storm: no Wi-Fi... yet

Storm boats a range of connectivity options, including quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge and HSDPA 3G, but not Wi-Fi. However, Tim Burgess, Device Technology Specialist at Vodafone, told Register Hardware this morning that there are plans to update the talked about talker with 802.11 wireless networking. However, he wouldn’t say when.

Vodafone argues that punters won't need Wi-Fi because its HSDPA network is sufficient. Well, maybe if you live in a city or major town. If not, you'll be connecting at no more than standard 3G's 384Kb/s and in outlying areas not even that.

A full rundown of Vodafone’s Storm price plans options is available online.
