Rumour: RIM making Blackberry Tablet – BlackPad?

A few days back, it was reported that RIM had purchased the domain name Blackpad.com. This sparked rumours that a possible new Blackberry tablet/ipad-like device is in the works.

A blackberry tablet was rumoured couple of months ago which said to feature a 8.9″ screen and connects via Bluetooth and WiFi only. It is also said that the focus is towards multimedia, ebooks or basically a tablet for the home, considering it lacks 3G cellular connectivity. This is a totally different product from the usual Blackberry range of products.

Nothing is concrete at the moment but we are eager to see what Blackberry could do with a tablet format which is currently dominated by iPads and with Android making an entrance soon.
