It has come to our attention that RIM has filed a Canadian trade-mark for an item called the “SurfBook”. Of course we all assume that this is in reference to the nicknamed “BlackPad” tablet that has been rumored to be in production.
While the trademark file gives us no details on what this is, we will of course jump to a conclusion of it being related to the tablet, due to the name. Of course this could be for just about anything, as RIM may just be tossing around some names and doesn’t want anyone else to snatch it up. There is no evidence yet to show that this name has been trade-marked in the US or in Europe, so who knows.
Hopefully some of the rumors are true and we will get some more info from DevCon, or at least see something before the holidays.
What do you guys think of the possibility of the name “SurfBook”?? Please drop a comment or head over to the Nerdberry Forums and let us know.
