RIM BlackPad

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that RIM is planning to announce its BlackPad tablet during its devloper conference, which begins Sept. 27. The device is designed to compete against Apple's iPad, the Dell Streak, and other slates in the space. Details are slim, but most expect the device to boast a 7-inch display and a new BlackBerry operating system. The platform will be built by QNX Software Systems, a company that RIM acquired in April.
