BlackBerry iPad, The “Blackpad,” Coming In November, Probably Toast

Posted in Tablets by futureofprint on July 30, 2010

Meanwhile, a few new bits on RIM’s efforts, via Bloomberg:

* It’s going to be called the “Blackpad,” according to a Bloomberg source. RIM bought the domain blackpad.com, a fact that was revealed earlier this week.

* RIM will introduce it in November.

* The Blackpad will be about the same size as the iPad, and will be able to use a BlackBerry’s internet connection (something Apple’s iPad can’t use an iPhone for — at least not yet).

So who’s going to buy this thing?

BlackBerry loyalists? It’s not like this is a situation where having a plastic keyboard is helpful. Or a situation where anyone would want to use their BlackBerry apps on a bigger screen.
