More Confirmation That a Flash Enabled BlackBerry Tablet is in the Works

TopsecretGirls Since we just mentioned the last tablet rumor this morning I wont go to far in depth on this one. We just have some more confirmation courtesy of Beta News that the details we covered this morning are correct.

Here is what they are reporting:

A source close to RIM confirmed to Betanews that Kumar’s statements were accurate, including the screen size, and the dual camera setup. But they gave us a bit of additional information that the rumors haven’t covered yet: Flash support.

So it looks like RIM might have scraped the 8.9” screen design in favor of a 7” one. Or maybe they have two devices in parallel or two variants? Still it is kind of cool to think that this tablet will get Flash 10.1 support but I am not sure how relevant Flash will be in the tablet space after Apple shunned them on the iPad.

What do you think? Is the BlackBerry Tablet (Aka Storminator) starting to look appealing?

  1. The screen would HAVE to be in a 16:9 format for video, cheaper then the iPad, as quick, sexy, and at least the same battery life, then I would take a LOOK.

  2. Actually, I am getting excited about the BB Tablet, but it is certainly NOT a replacement for my Storm. RIM, I still need a Storm replacement, and don’t even think of giving me something that is marginably better than the Storm 2. Think BIG and then think even BIGGER!! When I buy my next phone, I don’t want it to be obsolete in 1 year. Make it happen!

    I like the iPad but, as I’ve posted before, it is too closed and there is no memory expansion slots or USB support to add a USB flash memory or other stuff. A 7-inch device would be smaller and more easily transportable. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I like SurePress but perhaps it may not be the best thing for a larger screen on a Tablet.

    I’ve been reading a bit on Cisco’s Cius. The device itself is not spectacular, but combined with Cisco’s Collaboration Business tools, it is impressive. It’s a space that RIM cannot ignore if they want to maintain their key market segment: business communications.
