BlackBerry to launch BlackBerry 10 tablet this year BlackBerry has confirmed that they will be releasing a BlackBerry 10 tablet this year.
The company's last effort in the tablet market, the PlayBook, was an incredible failure. Sales were so low that the company was forced to liquidate hundreds of thousands of units at prices $200-$300 below MSRP.

While the company will be updating existing PlayBooks to BB10, as well, the hardware specs have begun to age and the company certainly knows that.

Sarim Aziz, the head of developer relations for Asia Pacific at BlackBerry, says 'the BB10 tablet is definitely coming later this year.'

The exec notes that the company's app store is approaching 100,000 apps after launching with 70,000 last month.

Gee, I hope it's as good as the Playbook.

Bwaa Haa Haa.
