“Tablets Are Not a Good Business Model”

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins, in an interview with Bloomberg:

“In five years I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore,” Heins said in an interview yesterday at the Milken Institute conference in Los Angeles. “Maybe a big screen in your workspace, but not a tablet as such. Tablets themselves are not a good business model.”

I think there’s another company named after a fruit that would disagree with you, Mr. Heins. Maybe your PlayBook didn’t sell because it was terrible.
