Will RIM announce a 9.7″ BlackBerry 10 Tablet on Wednesday?
RIM announced yesterday that it’s going to run a BlackBerry 10 ad during the Super Bowl.
In the press release they also referred to “next generation tablets”.
RIM confirms that BlackBerry 10, its new mobile computing platform that will power the next generation of smartphones and tablets, will be featured in a commercial during Super Bowl XLVII.
Now this has got us wondering on whether there will be an announcement of a new BlackBerry 10 tablet slipped into the launch details on Wednesday.
We have heard from sources for a while that RIM have been working on a 9.7″ tablet and Wednesday would be a perfect day to announce this, especially if the tablet has updated hardware and runs BlackBerry 10.
A brand new 9.7″ BlackBerry tablet with BlackBerry 10 and a real hardware update would be a fantastic surprise come Wednesday and would complement BlackBerry 10 smartphones beautifully.
What do you think? Is a new tablet on the cards or are they simply referring to the fact that existing PlayBook’s will be upgraded to BlackBerry 10 some time after launch?
