RIM to launch BlackBerry tablet?

7in iPad rival likely to feature Marvell processor

RIM are thought to be preparing to unveil a BlackBerry tablet that will rival Apple's iPad by supporting Flash.

Ashok Kumar, an analyst and managing director at Rodman & Renshaw, last week revealed he had seen a 7in tablet PC the smartphone manufacturer was working.

Kumar said the tablet would feature a processor from Marvell, which is already working with OLPC, as well as front and rear facing cameras, 1080p video playback and 3D graphics.

"Research in Motion is trying to pull forward the launch of the 7in touchscreen tablet from early next year to year end...with a marginal point of differentiation being the front- and back-facing cameras for videoconferencing," Kumar said in a research document.

While RIM declined to comment on the rumours, Beta News claims it has spoken to a source close to RIM who said Kumar's comments were accurate.
