Blackberry is going through a momentous year, having recently launched the Z10 phone in an attempt to turn around the company. Blackberry CEO Thorsten Heins isn’t lacking for confidence, though he doesn’t seem to have much faith in the future of tablets, suggesting that the company will only follow up the PlayBook tablet line if the company comes up with something original.
“In five years I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore,” Heins said. “Maybe a big screen in your workspace, but not a tablet as such. Tablets themselves are not a good business model.”
“In five years, I see BlackBerry to be the absolute leader in mobile computing. That’s what we’re aiming for,” he added. “I want to gain as much market share as I can, but not by being a copycat.”
