Question Blackpad Release Date?

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know if there is an official release date for the Blackpad (or whatever it's going to be called) yet? Just curious to find some official specs on the unit. Everything online still seems to be speculation information only.

RIM hasn't even announced it yet....so no date announced yet either.

OK, I guess it's still a wait and see game. I just liked the idea of tethering with the phone instead of paying another $300 a year for cell service!

Let's start a new thread - which will be out first, the BlackPad or OS6 for the 9700?

It seems that BlackPad will be another competitor for Ipad. I hope that it will be more functional that the Apple product and the price will be much more attractive. Some of the rumors says that the BlackPad is projected for release in November.

Wall Street Journal says that Blackpad will be announced next week at the RIM developers' conference for 4th quarter release.

That "announcement" is three weeks old.
This is not some sort of new information.

Then why bother to post it? It's not news. Perhaps it is on the site you have in your signature, but it isn't news here. Or anyplace else. Right?

I was answering the threads question. What's your deal? Arrogant moderator is arrogant.

Whatever. Post whatever old news you'd like. I hear that RIM is using a new OS on the Playbook. Is that news also?

I love the professionalism from these mods. Geez, I'm reluctant to continue posting here merely because of Grumpy over there trolling my posts.

This is the internet. Just have to get thicker skin. You had to expect some of this when you bumped a 2-3 week old thread with old information.

Brand new forum, this thread was in the top of the forum when I stumbled upon it. It was not a necro post, I was answering an unanswered thread.

Not a big deal, no problem, no rules broken.

I would expect far more professionalism, but I guess I'm expecting too much. Either that or this place is far more immature than I thought.

But what can you expect from a mod with Grumpy in his avatar?
