Blackberry CEO Vs Market experts on Tablets growth

In the early and mid-2000’s, the word “BlackBerry” was symbolic of smart phones but now, it’s a foregone story due to their delayed response to the market. Add to that a recent statement by BlackBerry CEO Thoris Heins that made their market understanding questionable. According to the CEO: “In five years I don’t think there’ll be a reason to have a tablet anymore. Maybe a big screen in your workspace, but not a tablet as such.
