BlackBerry’s VP of global product management, Francois Mahieu, sat down with Pocket-Lint over at Mobile World Congress and hammered out some details about their plans for future tablets. Mahieu confirmed that BlackBerry would consider building a tablet in the future but they are not doing it in the coming months. He specifically went on to say that:
"When we launched PlayBook, beyond the fact that everybody knows that PlayBook was no a huge success, everybody loved it," said Mahieu. "I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a meeting one day and I show you a tablet. We have equity in that space, but we’re not ready. We need more time."
In other words don’t hold your breath for a BlackBerry tablet anytime soon. My guess is they will leverage some sort of Bridge connection to other tablets or laptops in the future.
