RIM Purchases the BlackPad.com Domain in Anticipation of Tablet?

Comment

blackpad registration

The domain BlackPad.com has been registered by RIM and it looks like it could be a precursor to the launch of a BlackBerry tablet. We have heard the tablet could be named the Cobalt but maybe this means BlackPad is the final name.

It should be noted that RIM owns 4,280 other domains and a domain purchase isn’t necessarily proof of anything. Research in Motion also has registered BlackBerryPorn.com but that doesn’t mean they’re getting in the porno business.

NetworkSolutions to enable mobile domain hoarding

Comments

SmaugWe just found a cool site called NetworkSolutions through BlackBerry Insight that lets you not only check domain availability from your mobile browser, but even buy it through their 800 line. Now this might seem like a pretty esoteric service to offer, but there’s a lot of people out there who hoard domains, sometimes to great profit. Hell, just look at the iPhone.com guys (although they weren’t really squatting, to be fair). NetworkSolutions could let you nab that domain name as soon as you think of it, no matter where you are.
