PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless CEO of Blackberry Thorsten Heins said yesterday that he doesn't believe the tablet computer market is long for this world. "In five years I don't think there'll be a reason to have a tablet anymore," he tells Bloomberg News, "Maybe a big screen in your workspace, but not a tablet as such. Tablets themselves are not a good business model." If the dream of one device wirelessly interacting with all sorts of displays and peripherals comes to fruition, he may actually have a point.

Sounds like they are working on positioning their smartphones as desktop replacements by allowing them to be connected to bigger screens... I'll be interested to see what they come out with.

But yeah, to argue that there's no tablet market is silly. Maybe no tablet market for BlackBerry, though. And actually I'm OK with that, as long as they keep making good phones.
