BlackBerry smart phone powering a laptop?

BlackBerry OS 10

BlackBerry’s new smart phone, the BlackBerry Z10, has not met the expectations. I think we can agree on that fact. But the confidence and the energy to do something new has still not left the company, which is actually good. This kind of energy is what brings new devices to the market, this is good for us as customers. We will have more options, and this will actually bring down the cost of these devices.

BlackBerry may be thinking of entering one such new market. Well, this is not for sure, we might just be assuming stuff, I cannot be any more confused. But anyway, how would you like the idea of a BlackBerry Z10 like BlackBerry smart phone powering a laptop? This just means that the smart phone docking into the chassis of a laptop and then giving it life. We have already seen such products form a few companies, Motorola and Asus being a couple of them. But these products have never really caught the attention of the market.

But personally, I would prefer a product like this. I’ll carry my smart phone when I am out, and when I come back to my place, I can hook it up to the laptop chassis and get a bigger screen out of the smart phone. I will have my laptop dedicated for my actual heavy weight work, not for checking and replying to emails or checking my Facebook feeds. And with a smart phone already with me, I do not find the need to have a tablet. Tried it with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, sold it after three months.

Anyway, a few days ago, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins took part in an interview with ABC’s Joanna Stern, and the following is what Thorsten told:

“We are talking about a mobile-computing experience that makes sure that for you as a user, you only have to carry one computing device,” he said. “Then you get peripherals around it that make your life much more easy than it is today carrying a tablet, carrying a smartphone, carrying a tablet, going to your office and having a desktop.”

Now, I will leave the thinking part to you guys. Let us know what you think this means.
