BlackBerry PlayBook sequel unlikely as Heins slams tablets

BlackBerry PlayBook sequel unlikely as Heins slams tablets

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins has dismissed the long-term potential for tablets, arguing that time is running out on slates and - perhaps still stinging from the PlayBook failure - suggesting they're a bad business model. Heins, who had been suitably ebullient about the likely success of the recently-released BlackBerry Q10, predicting sales in the tens of millions, was equally critical of tablet options.

BlackBerry PlayBook is a Great Standalone Tablet, RIM Senior Product Manager Says

As far as tablets go, not many of them have been designed to be an out-right extension of a smaller device, like a smartphone.
