Leaked BlackBerry 10 Roadmap Shows Tablets and More Inbound

Would you buy a BlackBerry 10 tablet?
BlackBerry enjoyed some
with its new BlackBerry 10-powered Z10 smartphone. The Canadian-based company is now looking to build its newfound strength with an expanded lineup.
A leaked roadmap shows a wealth of new BlackBerry 10 devices that will be rolling out this year, and the list includes some fresh tablets and phablets. The fact that this list has surfaced so close to April Fool's day means you should have a few grains of salt ready to go.
The photo, which you can see below, shows the [already launched] Z10 followed closely by the launch of the QWERTY keyboard-equipped Q10. However, the roadmap shows during the Q3 to Q4 timeframe will be a new BB10 tablet.

The second half of the year will see a device called the U10 that looks to be a phablet similar in concept to
Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note series
. In Q2 of 2014, another device is listed called the R10. Previous rumors have suggested that Sprint will be getting a touchscreen device other than the Z10 at some point. Whether or not that device is one of the items on the supposedly leaked roadmap remains to be seen.
My money says this leaked roadmap is a fake thanks to the combination of timing with April 1 and the fact that it's from an unknown twitter account. What is interesting is if people think there is demand for BlackBerry to actually offer tablets and other devices running BlackBerry 10. Personally, I think with the history of failures that BlackBerry has had, the last thing the company wants to do with its current position being tedious best is launch products before it knows for sure the market wants them.

This is a huge leak. It clearly shows:

It also shows a complete lack of understanding to what people want.
