A Windows 8 hybrid by BlackBerry

When you think of BlackBerry you think of phones because that’s what the company has usually built. Like other companies, BlackBerry made a brief foray into the hot tablet space, but that may be over given the admission that it won’t be releasing BlackBerry 10 (BB10) for the Playbook. I’ve been thinking about that and I can’t shake the crazy idea that to replace the Playbook the company should build a Windows 8 hybrid for the enterprise.

BlackBerry was right to build the Playbook given the growth in the tablet space the last few years. Unfortunately, it botched the launch of the Playbook and it didn’t help that the new OS used for it didn’t light fires under buyers.
