This CEO is full of himself as if bb os is good and is sharing a vision to perform computer tasks lol..come out and ask any single people on street if bb devices any worth to buy?you'll get better answers.first save your mobile company from drowning Mr Heins and then open up your mouth and talk crap about others.seriously you should re-think your own statement..and yeah make better mobile dont try to copy from others.. :D

He is obviously envious of other platform success. His got crab mentality- that is dragging the top guy down. I played the BB Z10 at the store and didn't like it. It's BORING!!!

BB CEO may have said what he believes on wrong foot, but considering the limitations of tablets and netbooks he is right - Android and WP haven't been very innovative to drive hardware development, been rather complacent in what they have around. Having said that, BB CEO could have been more specific about what they are doing in that direction to revolutionize computing in mobile devices. I hope he noted what's going around SAP nowadays - lessons for thought.

"Mobile computing is "taking a computer and all necessary files and software out into the field."

"Mobile computing: being able to use a computing device even when being mobile and therefore changing location. Portability is one aspect of mobile computing."

"Mobile computing is the ability to use computing capability without a pre-defined location and/or connection to a network to publish and/or subscribe to information."
Examples: tablet computer, personal digital assistant (PDA, ultra mobile PC, smartphone, carputer is installed in an automobile, plus a mobile data transmission system(s). Boundaries that separate these categories are blurry at times, what is his definition??

Yea right ? . Don't think so...Android still the best free source in terms of mobile computing which RIM fail to give the best although BB Os10 in end of 2012 ?
Actually smartphone nowadays are daily use of our life thanks to Google for giving android. I still remember how people make fun android in the beginning of their vision but as you can see today android is in all smartphone in this world.
