With a rumored launch date in November, the BlackBerry tablet is definitely a gadget the Apple corporation should look out for.
Featuring a front and rear-facing camera, this 'BlackPad' is said to enable video conferencing -- a feature the current Apple iPad lacks. Further, with a price similar to that of its Apple counterpart, this BlackBerry tablet definitely be in high demand if the rumored video chat option were real.
Implications - The release of the Blackberry Tablet will further the business rivalry between Apple and RIM, which thus far has been isolated to mobile phones. Consumers of either product have a certain dedication to the brand that is only furthered by the growing rivalry, and the release of a RIM alternative is music to the ears of Blackberry devotees.
