BlackBerry’s hardware division needs a miracle to pull the company out of the slump it finds itself in. All smartphones it has released over the last couple of years haven’t exactly proven to be global hits. BlackBerry only made one foray into the tablet market, that too back in 2011 with the ill-fated PlayBook. Even though when it was first unveiled the tablet looked promising, it failed to set the market on fire. Since then the company hasn’t launched a new tablet, but an executive has hinted that a BlackBerry PlayBook successor might be released in the future.
