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.

"Now how that's related to your statement that there will be no "next big thing" in the next 5 years? "

But it is not my statement! Nobody knows what will be the next big thing and when it is coming.

Heins comments are here to explain why Blackberry will not enter the tablet market (again) in case you do not understand that point.

I say he is wrong saying this market is not worth it.
