So Research In Motion recently bought BlackPad.com, but it's been unclear if BlackPad will actually be the title of their upcoming tablet device or if it was simply a placeholder. The possibility that it will be the real product name increased today, as several unnamed sources have told Bloomberg that the device will indeed ship with a BlackPad label. The sources continued by saying that the BlackPad will be rocking a 9.7-inch display, WiFi, and Bluetooth, and that it will be "introduced in November." What Bloomberg's sources couldn't divulge, however, was the actual release date of the device.
I think it's a little surprising that RIM is allegedly waiting until November to unveil the BlackPad. They just bought the BlackPad.com domain, and considering how long the device has been rumored, I figured we would be seeing it much sooner. Just keep in mind, reader, that all of this news should be placed firmly in the "Rumor" category of your mind. So, are any of you interested in waiting around until the holiday season for a BlackPad?
