    LoL! I'm not sure. Checked wifi in BB. Mentioned under Welcome to Wi-Fi Set up that "Use this application to set up a Wi-Fi network connection.

    Use a wi-fi connection to your corporate network to do the following tasks:
    -Send and receive email messages
    -Visit Web pages

    Asked a friend who uses BlackBerry, he says it wouldn't work. Its still a pretty decent buy, you can buy a 1k dongle for internet access if you want.

    Buy the BB Playbook which is being sold for 6K in TE. That will pair via Bluetooth to your 8250 and do a Blackberry bridge.

    Yes, I have pre-ordered it already. Never done that before with any of my previous purchases. Fingers crossed :)

    There are a couple of reviews out there already for CoreX2. However, it is definitely out of OP's budget.
