BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins Sees Tablet Advantages, Aims to Improve Usage Ease

By Joshua Cheng , Crossmap On May 17, 2013

Blackberry CEO Thorsten Heins said on Tuesday that the company is looking at the future of tablets and investing R&D dollars into those projects.

"We believe in a single element of mobile computing: one on your hip," Heins said during a Q&A session with the media at the BlackBerry Live conference in Orlando, Florida. 

However, Heins said last month that he didn't see a place for tablets in five years. 

In a brief interview with CNET, Heins explained, "The industry got stuck on the term tablets." Despite his prior comments, he does see a role with larger-screen devices. "We want to create something that's easier to use."
