New report claims a November release window for RIM’s tablet PC.

A report from Bloomberg says that RIM’s tablet PC, the BlackPad, will run an operating system designed by QNX Software.

QNX Software, a company acquired by RIM back in April, “has customers in the automotive, industrial, medical and communications industries. Its software helps control the music, media and navigation systems in cars such as those from Bayerische Motoren Werke AG and Porsche SE”.

Bloomberg also reports that the BlackPad  will release sometime around November this year. BlackPad is rumored to be a Wi-Fi tablet with close integration with BB handsets.
