Rumors broke with recent statements by Thorsten Heins, CEO of Blackberry to the U.S. network ABC where he declared that “BlackBerry does not feel defeated in the tablet market.”

Heins complete statements were:
“For me this is not just the next smartphone. It has the power of a laptop, no longer just a smartphone. This is your personal computing power. Think about what you can do with this. How many personal computing devices can carry? Why not unify them into a single device that can meet all your computing needs?”

“We are talking about mobile computing experience ensures that you as a user will only have to carry a computing device over. Then get peripherals that make your life easier than it is today carrying a tablet, a smartphone, a laptop, going to the office and finding yourself with a desktop computer.”

“We certainly hope the ability to see in the Blackberry market a hybrid device given the interesting features of the newly released Blackberry Z10 and could be moved to the new hybrid”, Heins added.
