BlackBerry will update ‘all existing PlayBooks’ to BB10
When asked about future BlackBerry tablets, Heins was pretty vague, saying that the company is trying to figure out a way to sell a tablet with services since just selling hardware isn’t really bringing sufficient profits.
“We are looking for specific value added services on top of the tablet,” Heins said.
The answer came at a Q&A sessions after the BlackBerry 10 launch where the CEO also said the full QWERTY BlackBerry Q10 should come in April and confirmed the Z10 comes with a user-removable battery.
When asked about the company’s goals, Heins forwarded the question to marketing head Frank Boulben who said BlackBerry wants to quickly become the third biggest name in smartphones.

I still wish I could've been able to get one. Better than Samsung's support.

I'm curious to know about existing BB phones. That might be more interesting.

I too have a playbook and like it way better than my wife's ipad. was looking forward to the 10 update months ago, so in anticipation of it, I sold my 16gig and got a 64 incase it took more room. Thanks BlackBerry, I want one of your phones also. I'm on sprint and want the z10........what's with sprint about not getting it. Also wondering if tethering is going to still be included.
