New info keeps leaking out at a nice pace for RIM’s upcoming BlackBerry tablet, so here’s the latest: despite earlier reports of an 8.9-inch screen, insiders are now saying the tablet will have a 9.7-inch display. That’s in addition to the other specs we know — Bluetooth, WiFi, and front and rear-facing cameras for both pictures and video chatting. Apparently the manufacturing company Quanta will produce 2 million units of the tablet starting in September, with an initial release in November for a $499 price tag. We’ll find out if these rumors are true soon enough.
