Today’s Q1 2014 earnings call has been quite interesting. We’ve learned that the company will release another BlackBerry 7 device. Additionally, BlackBerry’s CEO Thorsten Heins announced some very disheartening news.
BlackBerry 10 will not be making its way onto the PlayBook. Yes, you read that correctly. There will be NO BlackBerry 10 for the PlayBook, despite the company saying it would release for the tablet.
Looking at the Q1 2014 highlights, BlackBerry shipped 100,000 PlayBooks for the quarter. This could have potentially been due to its hugely slashed price points and the anticipation of BlackBerry 10 available on the tablet.
