But based on statements from the CEO, it would appear that because the PlayBook carries less than 2GB of RAM, it would not be a suitable candidate for BlackBerry 10. Heins said that he could have released a version of BlackBerry 10 for the tablet, but his goal is for people to have a quality experience with the OS. The good news is that BlackBerry is considering handing out some sort of loyalty reward to BlackBerry PlayBook owners for not being able to fulfill its promise.
Ironically, Heins made some noise back in April when he said that tablets will be dead in five years. Another irony is that the QNX OS used for the BlackBerry PlayBook is the foundation of BlackBerry 10.
