RIM prepping BlackPad tablet

Posted on Wednesday, September 22 2010 @ 15:44:13 CEST by

According to a report by WSJ, Research In Motion may unveil a new tablet device as early as next week. The product is nicknamed BlackPad, it features a 7" touchscreen, two cameras and a new operating system created by the QNX Software Systems team. The RIM BlackPad is expected to be released in Q4 2010.
It will have Bluetooth and broadband connections but will only be able to connect to cellular networks through a BlackBerry smartphone, these people said. Since the tablet won't be sold with a cellular service, it's not clear which carriers or retailers will sell the device.

In a significant development, RIM's tablet will eschew the recently revamped BlackBerry 6 operating system in favor of a completely new platform built by QNX Software Systems, these people said.

RIM bought QNX, a maker of operating systems used in everything from cars to nuclear reactors, earlier this year, in what industry watchers said was a bid to replace software criticized as slow and buggy.
