Nick named Blackpad, new tablet to be announced by RIM soon

Reports suggest that Research in Motion, the makers of BlackBerry are all set to announce a tablet device of their own.

Dubbed the ‘ Blackpad’ , this tablet is supposedly another Ipad killer. With a screen size of 7 inches, the gadget is expected to run on a completely new OS developed by QNX, a company recently bought over by RIM.

Apple always does this – it builds a product that does not really fit a niche and this forces a whole lot of companies to follow suit in what is typically known as the ‘herd mentality’. Over half a dozen companies are already working on their ‘pads’ including Lenovo, Acer, Cisco, Dell, Asus, Samsung and the likes.  Guess its a good thing in a way – the competition leads to better products for us to comsume :)
