BlackBerry tablet to have 1GHz processor, dual cameras? According to a new research note from Rodman and Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar, the rumored RIM tablet may have a 7-inch screen, a 1GHz processor and dual cameras, allowing for picture taking and video conferencing.
The tablet will also have a 3G chip from Marvell, meaning you will not need a tethered BlackBerry to access cell networks.

Kumar's note says the Armada 618 is the leading candidate for the processor, meaning 1080p video will be supported as well as hardware acceleration.

While the still unconfirmed tablet had a rumored "early" 2011 launch, Kumar says the company wants it out for Christmas this year.

RIM has still not committed to the tablet, but has said such devices are a great bridge between a smartphone and a computer.

Asia already uses the dual camera feature. They've had that technology for many years now on most of their cell phones.
