BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) secured the Internet rights to the name “blackpad.com” which is expected to be the name of a RIM tablet bearing a 9.7 inch screen due in November, sources told Bloomberg.
The device will include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability.
As for the blackpad.com domain name, it was created by RIM on July 8 and expires on September 8, 2011 and one source told Bloomberg it will be the name of the new RIM tablet.
Earlier leaks on a RIM tablet predicted itt would tether to a BlackBerry phone for its wireless service. Perhaps the Blackpad will allow tethering as well.
