New credible reports are coming out that the BlackBerry tablet will be releasing in November. The name ‘BlackPad’ is said to be its final production title. While there have been many rumors regarding the specs on the tablet a few of them have supposedly been confirmed.
The BlackPad is said to be releasing with a 9.7-inch screen, 1Ghz processor, front and back facing cameras for video conferencing, WiFi, and bluetooth technology that will allow users to connect their BlackBerry devices to the BlackPad for utilizing the internet.
“They can’t wait for a second generation of devices from Apple or they’ll fall too far behind,” said Ashok Kumar, an analyst with Rodman & Renshaw Inc. in New York. This is one of the reasons why we should see the BlackPad released in November instead of early 2011.
There is a rumored price-tag of $499.
If everything comes to fruition it sounds as though RIM could bring a tablet to the market that may compete very well with the Apple iPad. If all of the specs are true and price is right, will you buy a BlackPad?
