Today, CEO Thorsten Heins confirmed that the BlackBerry Playbook will not be receiving the BB10 update during the company’s quarterly earnings call. The company missed estimates, leaving the stock down more than 25%.
BlackBerry itself has seen quite a few setbacks, to put it nicely, in the past few years and this news certainly won’t be easy to swallow for those who are still holding onto the company’s tablet.
In late May, it was said that the BB10 update would be headed to the Playbook in just a few weeks from then, so it’s a bit of a surprise to hear that it won’t be hitting the device. Then again, maybe it’s not.
BlackBerry Playbook owners: What do you think about this news? Will you still be holding onto the tablet or is it time to upgrade to something else?
