    $BBRY I think its nonsense to try to guess where the tablet market is going to be in a few years.

    • Babs61: I dont think BBRY is in a position to tell the consumers what they will need, or tell other manufacturers they got it wrong!!

    • Babs61: Considering their last 2 years performance...

    • Babs61: I am long the stock, and it worries me, when CEO comes up with irrelevant comments like this.

    • oneinfiniteloop: @Babs61, just 5 years ago if AAPL had told HP that their desktop business is going to be toast would you have said the same thing to Jobs?

    • oneinfiniteloop: Take the case of VMWare, today you can run 100s of VMs on a UCS box - you don't need a physical desktop. $AMZN has built a whole E2C cloud!

    • oneinfiniteloop: He is a technologist & when he says something please understand that $BBRY and other have some technology in the making that will achieve it

    • oneinfiniteloop: It is very easy for us to bash - but if you just step back and review the history and try to see what has come to pass thus far and assess.

    • Babs61: @Infinite I think we are talking about different things. Please stop defending anything that has BBRY on it. Its not healthy.

    • Babs61: I am a shareholder and will defend my capital, and will point out issues and problems.

    • Babs61: I dont belong to the Raa Ra hourai Blackberry camp. I am in it to make money, and think BBRY has some good things going for it
      5/1/13
    • Babs61: But has some major issues. Clearly behind a few players. And has NOT earned its way to give advice to the industry
      5/1/13
    • Babs61: Clearly I think the company IS undervalued. And hope it pays attention to criticisms and gets its house in order. I want to see BBRY at $50

    • bd4uandu: He was talking from BB experience with playbook.

    • Noodlez: That statement made by Thorsten Heins was not wise. $BBRY is neither $AAPL nor $GOOG. As long as they don't catch up in market shares...

    • jaych79: I am curious why people can say Thor has no right to comment about the future of tablets, but people who are even less qualified than..
      5/1/13
    • jaych79: ...he is can comment and say that tablets are here to stay. Maybe tablets will be here for the long haul, maybe not, but Thor is entitled...

    • oneinfiniteloop: I agree @bd4uandu, that @Babs61 was trying to say, "first bring your house in order before you talk about vision..." - a very valid point.

    • oneinfiniteloop: The "mouse" is now nearly a thing of the past - it still exists on some machines (servers) but it has evolved into something very different.

    • Tikay: From an investor perspective, I have grown to trust his judgement. If he talked the same talk as all mobile device CEOs, what good is that?
      5/1/13
    • oneinfiniteloop: In the near future you will have glasses that will project an iPad like experience with the phone feeding the content and ensuring security.

    • Tikay: Tablets are just a step in the mobile computing evolutionary process but having ONE device that does all the mobile computing is superior.

    • Babs61: For what its worth, I Dont have an iPad. A laptop and a smartphone covers me 95%. However, for some people Ipads are a laptop replacement.
      5/1/13
    • Babs61: I would have had more respect for his comments, if BBRY had successfully launched and sold iPads, and decided to move out of the market
      5/1/13
    • jaych79: I have a tablet (Galaxy Note). I love it. I just know that 5 years is a long time for technology to do its thing and make something obsolete
      5/1/13
    • Babs61: However with a massive launch failure. PLEASE... Stop being an oracle and make us some money. If you cant make money in a market, no need

    • Babs61: to tell stories
      5/1/13
    • jaych79: But that does not mean that tablets cannot grow and become even better than they are today. Time will tell.

    • bd4uandu: The first iPad was only released 3 years ago.

    • mzim88: I think what he said was right. But he is the wrong person to say it. I've owned several tablets and could never work them into my work day.
