BlackBerry makers RIM have bought up the blackpad.com domain name, sparking fresh rumours that the Canadian tech giants are to reveal their own tablet device in the near future.
The site, which has laid dormant under the same owner since 2002, remains blank, with little HTML coding that could reveal RIM’s intentions.
RIM had recently announced a press conference to take place on August 3rd, which many believed would showcase the forthcoming BlackBerry 9800 slider handset. However, with blackpad.com now registered just prior to the event, could RIM be about to reveal the long-rumoured iPad-battling BlackBerry tablet running OS 6.
Admittedly, it’s not much to go on, but with the RIM press conference due next Tuesday, at least we wont have long to wait before we find out what they’ve got up their sleeves.
