RIM will unveils its new tablet computer with 7 inch screen and new operating system on next week at a developers' conference in San Francisco. Currently, the Blackberry tablet is known as BlackPad. It is scheduled for release in the Q4 of this year. It will feature one or two built-in cameras too.

According to the people who've worked on the new OS. They say it's a worthy competitor to Apple's and Google's platforms, and could go a long way toward addressing complaints that RIM's devices are slow, unstable and hard to program for.
