While the executive did admit that the Canadian based OEM is working on some projects to see how a new tablet might work, Heins said BlackBerry would have to add some value to the slate before releasing another one. He called the hardware side of the tablet market cutthroat and very difficult although he praised Apple, which he didn't mention by name, for doing tablets well enough to grab a majority of the market.
launched without a native calendar app and even more disturbing for a company that prides itself on doing email better than the other mobile firms, it launched without a native email application.
With reports swirling that Apple is in the process of building a smartwatch, Heins said that if the market calls for such a device, he would have one built. "And if I need to build a watch, I'll do it," stated Heins. "I don't know yet."

They should've make a new gen PlayBook, BB will be a big hit if they make that.

The playbook was horribly over priced at $499.99 when it launched. But when it dropped to $199.99 it sold like hot cakes.

The d**k Tracy watch is not wanted, much like the google glasses. Gimmicks.. You still need a phone to drive them or the headset.. neither are form factors anyone outside a hipster will want.
