An analyst has revealed what he claims are details of BlackBerry manufacturer RIM’s new tablet device.

The 1GHz tablet will be powered by a processor from Marvell, according to Ashok Kumar, an analyst at Rodman & Renshaw.

"Research In Motion is trying to pull forward the launch of the 7-inch touchscreen tablet from early next year to year end... with a marginal point of differentiation being the front- and back-facing cameras for videoconferencing," said Kumar in a research note.
