When Apple announced their iPad, the world wasn’t sure what to make of it. In order to fully understand the iPad, you need to realize it’s not meant to be a laptop replacement and it’s not a smartphone–it’s in between.
Even though the iPad has a multitude of uses, one of the best in my mind is consuming media. With iPad sales projected to sell 21 million units in 2011, competitors want a piece of new tablet pie.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has created some hype, but there’s one other tablet rumoured to make a grand entry: RIM’s so called “Blackpad”. This tablet is supposed to be announced next week and will have a 7 inch screen, camera, app store, and possibly a slide out keyboard.
Could the new “Blackpad” be a larger version of the Blackberry Torch? I sure hope not. Either way, I can guarantee that the “Blackpad” will not even come close to the speed and multitouch advancements on the iPad.
Remember the so called “iPhone killer”, aka the Blackberry Storm? I have a feeling history could be repeating itself once again. This fight was over before it even started.
What do you think? Will RIM’s new tablet be a flop, or will it be an actual challenger to the iPad?
