BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion (RIM) is to unveil its tablet device, dubbed the ‘Blackpad’, possibly as early as next week.
More recently, Samsung unveiled its Galaxy tablet. Unlike the iPad, Samsung’s device is able to load web pages built with Flash. It also has a camera on the front and back, a feature not included on current iPads.
RIM refused to comment on the launch.
Users can continuously communicate via email, voice and video call, SMS/MMS or social network, via its optimised user interface. Samsung has not released a launch date or price for the tablet.
Lenovo is also rumoured to be launching a tablet device before Christmas.
