BlackBerry Tablet Could Be Named the BlackPad

by Reads (4,792)

Rumors that smartphone-maker RIM is working on a BlackBerry tablet computer jumped up a notch this week when the company purchased rights to the domain name “BlackPad.com”.

RIM itself has refused to comment on reports of this device, but quite a bit of information on it has leaked out already. It will supposedly offer a 7-inch display, 1 GHz processor, and dual cameras.

With the success of the Apple iPad, many would consider the name BlackPad a logical choice for a BlackBerry tablet — RIM certainly appears to, and is setting up a website under this domain name.

Preliminary Preview of the BlackPad

According to numerous but unconfirmed reports, the BlackBerry tablet is going to have a 7-inch touchscreen display, removing the need for a hardware keyboard.

It will supposedly be based on a 1 GHz processor from Marvell, and have hardware-accelerated support for Adobe Flash.

The BlackPad is going to let users do video conferencing courtesy of its front- and rear-facing cameras.

This device will offer support for 3G, and might have Wi-Fi too according to published reports.

RIM will allegedly introduce this tablet computer as early as the beginning of next year.
