Six BlackBerry phones at a time says Heins, with one more BB7 to come

Six BlackBerry phones at a time says Heins, with one more BB7 to come

BlackBerry aims to have no more than six different products on the market at any one time, CEO Thorsten Heins has said, potentially limiting BlackBerry 10's roll-out as it tries to keep enterprise users of the older OS content. Speaking on BlackBerry's financial results call, after announcing an $84m loss in the most recent quarter, Heins described the new platform as being "still in the early stages of transition"; BlackBerry sold 6.8m devices overall in financial year Q1 2014, though did not break that figure down into BlackBerry 7 versus BlackBerry 10 models. The company has at least one more BlackBerry 7 device in the pipeline for this year.

The Canadian company's latest results show revenues rose - year-on-year - for the three month period, now up to $3.1bn compared to $2.8bn in 2012 - with sales overall of 6.8m Blackberry handsets, though it has not yet detailed what proportion of those ran BlackBerry 10.

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. "In five years I don't think there'll be a reason to have a tablet anymore" he predicted.

Skype hits BlackBerry 10, but the Z10 is out of luck for now

Skype has landed for BlackBerry 10, but would-be VoIP users will need a Q10 initially, until BlackBerry updates its initial Z10 smartphone. The new app, confirmed as incoming only earlier this week, offers voice and video calling, instant messaging, and text messaging, just like Skype on other mobile platforms; however, it requires BlackBerry 10.1, loaded from the off on the newer Q10, but still pending for the Z10.
