RIM grabs "BlackPad.com;" tablet rumors begin anew

Domain name moves along Blackberry tablet hopes

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Jul 30, 2010 1:15 am

Following in the footsteps of HP trademarking "PalmPad" for their expected new tablet, RIM has purchased the domain name "BlackPad.com" 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.
