BlackBerry Readying Challenge to Apple’s iPad: the BlackPad

Sep 22, 2010  •  Post A Comment

BlackBerry maker Research in Motion is preparing to unveil a new tablet computer to challenge Apple’s iPad, which insiders are calling the BlackPad, reports the Wall Street Journal (Note: the online version of the Journal is behind a pay wall and may ask you to subscribe or otherwise charge you to read the story. PCWorld has a free account of the story.)

The tablet is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter and will have a seven-inch touch screen, as well as at least one built-in camera, the WSJ story says.

The BlackPad will also have Bluetooth and broadband access, but will only be able to connect to cell-phone networks through a BlackBerry smartphone, the story says.

It’s not clear which carriers or stores will sell the device, given that it won’t be sold with a mobile-phone service, the story says.

The tablet will also use a new operating system built by QNX Software Systems, rather than the BlackBerry 6 operating system, the article says.
