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.

He did not refer to yesterday or tomorrow but to "next 5 years". Think polymer-keyboards, projections, Google Glasses. If the reasons why Tablets are successful, integrated bigger display and input-methods, are changing then whats left that can't be done with smaller devices like smartphones or a watch?
