There is no single "smartphone team" and "tablet team". There are many teams. There are teams for many different areas (e.g. location services, sensors, messaging) as well as teams for various phases of development in some cases. There are also teams for each app (or small sets of apps). Some have been different on the two platforms, because they are two platforms. As they become one, they will not merely have two separate teams working in parallel on "phone version of app X" and "tablet version of app X" although certainly in many cases that is how it has been up to now, but only because the UIs are so different.

I completely agree with their strategy of focusing on the phones right now, because (I believe, and clearly you do not) that without that focus they would have shipped later, and would have failed to survive long enough ever to worry about putting BB10 on the tablets. As it is, they're not out of the woods quite yet, and need to maintain that focus for a bit longer.
