  • V.P. In Charge Of PlayBook For BlackBerry Resigns


    Given the recent news that the BlackBerry PlayBook would NOT be getting the BlackBerry 10 OS, the news that the David J. Smith, Vice President in charge of the PlayBook, resigned is not all that shocking. Smith was with BlackBerry for eight years at the time of his resignation.

    The concept of the PlayBook, however ambitious, never really developed fully. Missing features and somewhat underpowered, many PlayBook owners felt that they were left with half a tablet that hadn't reached it's potential. Updates to the PlayBook were few and far between and were a harbinger of things to come.

    When BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins announced that the BlackBerry PlayBook would not get the BlackBerry 10 OS upgrade it virtually killed the PlayBook's future, turning it into a relic of BlackBerry history. A sad ending to a piece of technology that had a lot of potential.

    Does this news surprise you? Or was it about the right time for Smith to go? Let us know in the comments below.
