RIM Senior Vice President David Yach confirmed to eWeek that we will in fact see Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry devices by the years end. That’s all we know for now. We have also heard rumors of a UMA enabled BlackBerry in the works as well.

“I think Wi-Fi is interesting because it offers a number of capabilities, and because it offers coverage where there is none,” Yach said. “You’re not as concerned about usage fees. Our goal with Wi-Fi then is that Wi-Fi will just work. When you have coverage Wi-Fi will work, and when you don’t you’ll use something else,”
