Name Of Blackberry Tablet – BlackPad?

We all know that the Canadian smartphone maker, RIM is working on a tablet device. We have also heard that the new Blackberry tablet will come with a 7-inch touchscreen screen, 1GHz Marvell Processor and two cameras – one on the front and another on the rear.

Now, there are fresh indications that the tablet PC from RIM could be named BlackPad. This comes from a recent revelation that the Blackberry makers have recently purchased the BlackPad.com domain name from its earlier owner. The website itself does not resolve to anything at the moment, though the WhoIs data for the domain name seems to confirm the current owner.

BlackPad in my opinion is a pretty pointless name. Not only does it fail to exploit the brand recall that “Berry” has to offer, but by taking the “pad” route, the company seems to be confiding the fact that they are in the market solely because Apple is here.

What do you think of the name, BlackPad?
