A new contender to enter the tablet arena?

Unofficial reports have surfaced that, hot on the heels of the Apple iPad, Blackberry is to unveil a new tablet device.

The device is expected to to be smaller and thinner than the iPad with an 8.9 inch screen and is expected to be fully compatible with Blackberry OS.

This is not the first time Blackberry has followed Apple’s lead, following the iPhone with the BlackBerry Storm and changing BlackBerry OS 6.0 to include a Cover Flow-like media player and other touch-friendly elements. [via BBLeaks]

It would also sport both a 3G connection and Wi-Fi and may sync with a BlackBerry smartphone.

It’s thought that Blackberry will be unveiling their new device sometime in 2011.
