BlackBerry users get free AT&T Wi-Fi too

By on October 30, 2008, 12:23 PM
Yesterday, after months of giving and taking back free Wi-Fi to iPhone users, AT&T finally made the service official. But apparently the company has deemed it would be elitist to only let iPhone users get free Wi-Fi at its hotspots, and thus today it announced that all BlackBerry users with an unlimited data plan will be privy to the “nation’s largest Wi-Fi network” as well.

The BlackBerry Bold, which is set to launch November 4, will be getting it first while users of the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and the BlackBerry 8820 will be able to take advantage of this offer later this year. What about Windows Mobile smartphones? Well, AT&T says it plans to open the offer to more mobile devices in the future, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
