RIM to Release BlackPad Tablet in November?

No comments:




RIM is planning to introduce a tablet computer in November that will compete with the Apple iPad, according to a Bloomberg report.

The device will have roughly the same dimensions as the iPad, which has a 9.7-inch diagonal screen, said the two people who wouldn’t be identified because the plans haven’t been made public. The device will include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology that will allow people to connect to the Internet through their BlackBerry smartphones, the two people said.

RIM plans to call the tablet "Blackpad", according to one of Bloomberg's sources. The company bought blackpad.com earlier this month as you can see in the image below.

Pricing for the device is expected to match the iPad at a $499 entry point.

First 3D Animated Storybook App for iPad

No comments:



The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross, an exciting new iPad app, was released and is available for iPad users at App Store for $4.99. Inspired by the age-old tale of a man who becomes rich through a dream, The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross describes the journey of a poor pedlar woman who, guided by the shifting line between the real and the unreal, discovers a surprising and wonderful treasure.

The app's dynamic typographic layouts can be animated using the iPad's accelerometer, and randomly selected alternative perspectives are incorporated to ensure that no two viewings are alike. Other features include Cover Flow-like navigation, the choice to hear and display the story in Spanish as well as English and compelling, poetic voice-over narratives.

"Poetic! Evocative! Takes modern story-telling to the next level by embracing the best of today's technology." Alison Prentice, Granma, Professor Emerita, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto

By presenting tales of transformation, truth, drama and humor using a state-of-the-art digital 'mash-up' of methods from the worlds of ebook publishing, graphic novels, film and interactive media, Classic World Tales establishes a truly original and engaging new world of storytelling.

The Pedlar Lady of Gushing Cross is the first of many stories designed for parents, grandparents and other adults to share great stories with children of all ages. By using the cutting-edge technology of the iPad, each story offers a compelling narrative and superlative visual and sound effects, and will enchant and delight all.

"We started Moving Tales to expand and explore storytelling on the iPad platform." said Filmmaker Matthew Talbot-Kelly, Founder, Producer and Director of Moving Tales Inc. "Not just any stories, but tales with rich legacies, many of which have been told for millennia. We are taking these stories for a walk - rephrasing and reframing them in a way that is compelling and appropriate to this new platform. Although they have aspects of books, animated films, storytelling and interactive media, the result is greater than the sum of its parts. Our very bold intention is to develop the first great iPad storybook app."

Next In The Series:
"The Unwanted Guest" - In this adaptation of a traditional Jewish folk tale, a poor old man, down on his luck and living in a tumbledown house, is visited by an unwelcome houseguest. The story tells of the old man's attempt to rid himself of his surprising visitor once and for all.

Supported Languages:
* US English and Spanish

Pricing and Availability:
Pedlar Lady 1.0 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Books category.
