Labels: , , , ,

According to Digitimes, the BlackBerry tablet, the BlackPad, could be launching in September of this year. Apparently, RIM is looking to sell 2 million units this year and another 8 million units next year. This is pretty optimistic from RIM but it'll already sell less than the iPad seeing how Apple managed to sell 3 million in three months. Anyways, the retail price for the tablet is expected to be $499, but it's just a rumour right now.

Verizon's 2010 / 2011 Roadmap Leaks Out; Full Of Android, Tablets, and LTE (4G) Goodness

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A bunch of possible Verizon leaks have just been spewed out, thanks to Boy Genius, a roadmap of sorts. Apparently, first in line will be a Motorola DROID Pro which will feature a 4-inch display, a 1.3GHz CPU, and some version of Android. Since it has the "Pro" moniker I'm guessing that it'll feature a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. BGR is quick to mention that this smartphone could actually hit the market before the end of the year, in November.

There's also word of Motorola working on another Android 2.2 based handset which is similar to the old Motorola Q. This will feature a touchscreen display along with global roaming. Samsung and HTC are reportedly also going to push out their own Android handsets with global roaming. The HTC one might have leaked out over the weekend.

Verizon will be launching a tablet from Samsung and it's said to be 7-inches along with a front-facing camera. This could very well be the Galaxy Tab. Motorola's also going to be releasing a tablet on the carrier but it'll be a bit larger. The tablet from them is expected to sport a 10-inch display along with a 1GHz / 1.3GHz CPU along with a front-facing camera and Android 3.0 "Gingerbread." Sadly, this was supposed to launch this year, December, but apparently it has been delayed until February 2010.

Verizon is reportedly going to have 75% of the country covered with their new LTE (4G) network by April 2012. the carrier will be releasing a Novatel LTE MiFi device in early 2010 (January or February) and it'll support up to 10 simultaneous users. Apparently, the data for the device will cost $59.99 monthly so you might want to save up quite a bit of money.

Update: Techland has just pointed out that Verizon and Google are making an announcement at 1:30PM EST today. It's just about a half hour away!
