The Blackberry Tablet is looking more real each day.
Yesterday we reported about a rumor that RIM will unveil the BlackPad next week at the BlackBerry developer conference in San Francisco. Today eWeek reports that Susquehanna Research analyst Jeffrey Fidacaro has learned from a source that RIM is building 2.5 million Tablets for Q4 2010. It is expected that the BlackBerry Tablet is mainly marketed to enterprise costumers and not to consumers. It will therefore not directly compete with the iPad.

The BlackPad is also supposed to be more like a companion device to a BlackBerry smartphone. It is connecting only via a BlackBerry to the net. Speculations are still going back and forth over which operating system the BlackPad is running. Will it be BlackBerry OS 6 or a new QNX based OS.
In general I think it is a good idea when RIM positions the BlackPad as an enterprise device. It should though be able to connect to the net with Wi-fi and 3G itself and not depend on a BlackBerry.
