Canadian mobile phone maker BlackBerry (known as Research In Motion until yesterday) has officially confirmed that all existing PlayBook devices will receive an upgrade to the new BlackBerry 10 platform release.
Thorsten Heins, the company’s CEO, said this
referring to the different capacity and connectivity versions of the 7-inch tablet PC that arrived on shelves in the past few years.
One thing that he did not say, however, was when new tablets from the company were set to land on shelves.
He did say, however, that the BlackBerry
was looking at ways to pack the tablet with services, since selling only hardware had not paid off very well for the company until then.
One thing that is certain, however, is the fact that the company is aiming at regaining its foothold on the smartphone market, being set to become the third largest company in this segment in the near future.
