Thorsten Heins Claims Tablet Irrelevance In Five Years

1 May 2013

The Verge:

As BlackBerry launches its keyboard-equipped Q10 smartphone, CEO Thorsten Heins is once again downplaying the importance of tablets in the mobile market. “In five years I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore,” Heins told Bloomberg in an interview.

If Heins truly believes that, Blackberry should be preparing the next big thing right now. There are no indications of that being the case.
