Research In Motion will introduce a tablet computer in November to compete with Apple Inc`s iPad, Bloomberg News reported on Friday.
The Waterloo, Ontario-based maker of the BlackBerry smartpnone will call the device the Blackpad, according to one of the sources.

RIM is widely expected to unveil a revamped version of the BlackBerry on Tuesday, aiming to compete more effectively against Apple`s iPhone and other advanced smartphones.
