The news that the BlackBerry PlayBook will not be updated came during a conference call on Friday with analysts. Heins said during the call that his engineers were unable to get a satisfactory performance on the slate with the new OS. Earlier this year, the BlackBerry CEO predicted that the tablet market would be dead in five years. Considering the failure of BlackBerry to deliver on a promise it had made as early as March 2012, we are not going to put too much faith in that forecast. The problem isn't so much that the update cannot be done, but that it was promised to long-suffering BlackBerry PlayBook owners in the first place. After all, this is a tablet that was launched without an email or calendar client which was remarkable considering the manufacturer's reputation for the way it handles email and business applications.
