Not to be outdone by the likes of the new Asus-Android tablet rumoured to be materializing momentarily, Research in Motion’s BlackPad has also said to be dropping by any day now.
BlackBerry’s BlackPad is said to be making its first public appearance next week in a developer’s conference in San Francisco. Only the most basic specs are pinned down in the rumour mills: this device will probably feature a 7-inch touchscreen display and a camera. This rumoured first-showing date coincides with earlier predictions that the BlackPad would be out in this final quarter of the year.
By the time the holiday buying season heats up, it looks like tablet (and e-reader) shoppers are going to have more options to consider — both in stores, and what’s just over the horizon.
