    I know it's April 1st and all but I found this posted on the online edition of the National Post:

    Leaked roadmap reveals BlackBerry gearing up to launch new tablet

    "A leaked BlackBerry roadmap, first uncovered by TechnoBuffalo, suggests the Canadian company is gearing up to launch a new tablet, and two phablet devices within the next year.

    According to the roadmap, BlackBerry will release a tablet, dubbed the B10, around the third quarter of this year. Before the first quarter of 2014, it looks like BlackBerry will introduce a phablet device. And by the second quarter of 2014, we may see a new tablet-like device with a QWERTY keyboard."

    Old news, no news, April 1st gag, or the real deal?

    If a phablet device is what we have in Playbook now, why two more and does it mean a tablet is something larger, like 10 inches?

    This was covered in another thread. Part of the problem is the way the photo was taken. When de-skewed, it looks more like the PlayBook getting the BB10 upgrade in the fall and probably the two mid-tier phones coming out late fall.

    I don't really know, but it does seem to line up with what TH has already declared will come in the next few quarters. A road map such as this whether or not it is from BB is pretty vague. No one can really pin down release dates. It does seem to counter speculation about a 10 inch tablet or any other new tablet or at least provide little support for such speculation. TH has already declared nothing tablet-wise is coming out (other than the promised upgrade to BB10) unless it can make money.
