Thorsten Heins, the CEO of BlackBerry (formely RIM) recently admitted, that the future for tablets is not very bright. He argued that the current tablet market is very crowded, and that within 5 yers time there won't be a demand for the tablets we know today. Heins said that there is a space in the market for devices which have bigger screens that the mobile devices, but not in the shape of a tablet.

It's not sure whether this opinion is objective, or it is influenced by not-so-great launch of the Playbook tablets. It is sure, however, that the time will eventually bring the answer.
