BGR says multiple sources have confirmed that “the 8.9&Prime BlackBerry tablet will be strictly a “companion” device. Like Palm Foleo, it’ll not have any cellular networking built in, and will rely on either a Bluetooth connection to your BlackBerry or built-in Wi-Fi radio – the focus of the device is said to be multimedia — think e-books, emailing, web browsing, photo viewing.” The launch of the tablet is slated for December, but the team is trying to get it out to the marketplace sooner. Also, “up until at least pre-iPad announcement, RIM had a monochrome version of a tablet device in their wings. Yes, you heard correct — it looks like RIM was, at least one time, trying to build a Kindle competitor,” reports BGR.
