BlackBerry CEO, Thorsten Heins, in an interview with Computerworld, assumed that Android and Windows Phone as not sharing his vision of a "mobile computing future" where mobile devices could be used for the same tasks as computers.

He also added that Android and Windows Phone "are not mobile computing platforms" but didn't specify in what regard exactly.

Heins assumed BlackBerry "really thought hard about" building BB services for Windows Phone and Android but rejected the concept for the aforementioned reasons.He didn't say anything about iOS, however.

When asked if BlackBerry will build a BlackBerry 10 Operating System (OS) tablet device Mr Heins noted "We are running a few projects" on "how we can hold it to the next stage and not just be another tablet". He added "If I build a tablet, I will not build it for the hardware purpose... I will do this around a service".
