RIM grabs ";" tablet rumors begin anew

Domain name moves along Blackberry tablet hopes

Following in the footsteps of HP trademarking "PalmPad" for their expected new tablet, RIM has purchased the domain name "" in a move that is starting more chatter about the rumored Blackberry tablet that RIM has still not leaked a whole lot about to this point.




The tipoff came from someone doing a WHOIS search on a domain sating that RIM purchased the name only a few days ago. The domain has been owned by quite a few people since 2002, so RIM had to go and find the owner and take it off their hands. Whether it's the pre-production codename or what we'll see on retail packaging, the folks at Blackberry are making sure they've got this little marketing tool in their pocket.
