A new leaked roadmap of Blackberry’s upcoming devices has appeared online, which provides us with a glimpse of what to expect from the Canadian manufacturer. While the credibility of the leak is debatable, the products that found mention do hold some value. Apart the Z10, there is also the Q10 QWERTY smartphone along with a phablet as well. However, what is of most interest to us is the mention of a tablet device named B10. While details are obviously missing, the B10 looks to be a rather big device with a 10 inch display. If this is true, it will be an acid test for the hardware as well as the new BB10 platform against its more established competitors, such as the iPad or the Android based Nexus 10. That said, the company’s recently launched Z10 smartphone did make a strong positive impression in the world market, though there is also no denying that competing in the tablet space is an entirely different ballgame.
Blackberry’s earlier attempt was the PlayBook that offered a 7 inch display, but it never could make a dent in the tablet segment. While the above leak does lack an official seal of approval, a new tablet from Blackberry is well overdue. So stay tuned.
