BlackBerry will update ‘all existing PlayBooks’ to BB109
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.
