RIM Readies Its Answer to iPad

We have heard rumblings that RIM could have its own tablet, dubbed by the rumor mongers as 'BlackPad', out very soon and today, there's word circulating that this tablet could make its debut as early as next week.

WSJ.com - The tablet, which some inside RIM are calling the BlackPad, is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of this year, these people said. It will feature a seven-inch touch screen and one or two built-in cameras, they said. It will have Bluetooth and broadband connections but will only be able to connect to cellular networks through a BlackBerry smartphone, these people said. Since the tablet won't be sold with a cellular service, it's not clear which carriers or retailers will sell the device.
