BlackBerry CEO claims tablets will be pointless in 5 years

Today some comments are being thrown around by the CEO over at BlackBerry, formerly RIM, about the current and future state of tablets. To quickly sum it up, Thorsten Heins just doesn't really like tablets. Which was pretty evident with their attempts at the segment with the PlayBook piggybacking off of Android.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Review

Samsung has had a place in the mid-size tablet market for a while now, and their newest piece of machinery takes things to a new level. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is the happy medium between the company’s Galaxy Note 10.1 and the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II, and we first took a look at the new device during Mobile World Congress back in February. It comes with the infamous S Pen, as well as a quad-core processor to keep things humming along nicely.

Android expected to cut into Apple’s tablet market share moving forward

There isn't any question that Apple's iPad line has been a major hit, but the time it's enjoying on top may not last much longer. Android has been slowly taking away Apple's market share with a number of excellent tablets (the Nexus 10 and Nexus 7 immediately come to mind), and that looks like it'll continue as we crawl toward 2016. IDC has released new predictions for the tablet market, and unsurprisingly, the predictions have Apple's share falling year after year moving forward.
