RIM BlackPad Could Arrive November at $499

RIM is still rumoured to be working on the BlackPad. We heard last week that the device was to get a 9.7 inch screen, Bluetooth, WiFi as well as cameras on the front and back.

We now hear that Quanta will be manufacturing the tablet and that they will be building two million units in September in preparation for a launch in November.

Price wise, the tablet is also rumoured to be starting at $499. When we say starting, it isn’t clear at the moment if several models will be launched like Apple [AAPL] did with the iPad, or if RIM will just stick to the one model.

Shipments for next year are rumoured to be jumping up to 8 million.
