RIM just announced that it’s going to run an ad during the Super Bowl. That’s great, but buried in the release the company also re-confirmed that BlackBerry 10-powered tablets are in the pipeline. Here’s the clip that stands out most:

RIM confirms that BlackBerry 10, its new mobile computing platform that will power the next generation of smartphones and tablets, will be featured in a commercial during Super Bowl XLVII.

We haven’t heard of any news on when RIM will launch a follow-up to the PlayBook, but we hope it doesn’t botch this tablet launch as badly as it did that one.
