We are hearing continuous rumors that RIM are due to announce their tablet device to the public next week. It is thought to be called the RIM ‘BlackPad’ and is going to offer customers another alternative to the iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Despite the fact that it hasn’t even been unveiled yet, rumors are suggesting that the BlackPad could even be launched next week too, similar to what Apple tends to do. Specific features and specs are unknown at the moment, but we previously told you that a 7-inch display, front facing camera for video chats and a 1Ghz processor would be included.
Considering this device is coming from RIM, you would think that the newest version of BlackBerry OS will be included – it could even be a newer version than 6.0 – what do you think?
If RIM do announce it next week, then it will definitely take the limelight away from the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which was only just unveiled recently too. All these devices are trying to bring down the iPad, but will they succeed? Let us know which one you are planning to buy.
