RIM to reveal BlackPad tablet in November? According to BusinessWeek, RIM is preparing to release its still unconfirmed BlackPad tablet in November.
Earlier in the week, the smartphone company registered BlackPad.com, with the domain being purchased by CSC, a company that specializes in corporate branding, on behalf of RIM.

The two sources claim the BlackPad will have a 9.7-inch screen, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tech that will allow users to connect to the Web via their BlackBerry smartphones.

"They can’t wait for a second generation of devices from Apple or they’ll fall too far behind," says Rodman and Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar.

Pricing will be "in line" with that of the iPad, which begins at $500 USD.
