    I keep hearing the "q30" may be the rumored health industry device, but after seeing a doctor today, I noticed they all walk around with laptops. So, the idea came to be, why does the health industry device have to be a phone? Why can't it be a tablet? The new playbook. High resolution screen, somewhere around 10-12 inches and a detachable keyboard, if need be. Something that would give the new Surface Pro 3 a run for it's money.

    That was my description of a device I would like to see. But with sim and cheaper price. The long and the short is Chen says a tablet is not priority now and he will look at it next year.

    Doctors might like the convenience of something that doesn't sit on a rolling cart all day and that can be attached to your hip. It's actually a nice form factor. I honestly think 4.5" isn't enough. They should have gone bigger. But not as big as a 7" tablet.

    Actually, maybe this is the best solution. I'm sure BBRY considered ergonomics. It's not some guy in a room coming up with his ideas. The sizing is most likely based on research.

    Haha great post and visible thought process. Keyboarded tablet at the hip does sound good. But I wonder if it won't be more difficult to clean. A glass screen can be wiped down, but a keyboard is perfect for breeding germs.

    I am think blackberry blend and the ion project will make any inexpensive tablet into a powerful tool so the need to design a blackberry tablet is not a priority.
