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.

The CIO Insight

If RIM announces a new tablet, you’ll likely have no other choice but to evaluate the device. As you know, tablets are becoming increasingly attractive in the enterprise. And, given RIM’s history of working closely with enterprise customers, there’s a good chance that its tablet will meet your corporate needs better than Apple’s iPad.
