News Update: RIM Said to Plan Crusher Tank Technology for Tablet Computer


Bloomberg Businessweek reports that Research In Motion Ltd. is looking to technology used in BMW audio systems and the Army’s Crusher tank to distinguish its new tablet computer from Apple’s iPad.
The tablet will run on software developed by QNX Software Systems, which RIM bought in April from Harman International Industries Inc. for 0 million. RIM introduces the tablet, set to be called BlackPad (think BlackBerry), as similar devices are filling the gap between smartphones and laptops.
Marisa Conway, a spokeswoman for RIM, declined to comment.
