It looks like the rumors were wrong and the BlackBerry Tablet is called the& not the BlackPad. The spec sheet looks great with Cortex A9, 1GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 7-inch display, 16GB of RAM, 1080p HDMI video and will have HDMI and USB ports, micro usb and a front and rear HD camera configuration. Size wise its 7.6″ x 5.1″ x 0.4″ and .7 mm thick. The tablet will also have OpenGL and POSIX support which seemed to have the developers cheering. Shantanu Narayen CEO of Adobe also got on stage to discuss the support that Adobe was giving to provide consumers with the full web experience.
Software wise it looks like there is a webOS-like app switching, an e-reader component, full document editing, pairing with BlackBerry phones and DLNA media streaming support . It runs a new user interface developed by QNX software. We caught the demo video as well as the walk through during the BlackBerry DevCon 2010. When is this tablet coming to market? Well they have indicated that it is going to released early 2011, so we’ll cross our fingers for CES or (more likely) Mobile World Congress.
