David J. Smith, BlackBerry's Vice President in charge of their PlayBook tablet, has resigned. Smith had been working for the company for 8 years, taking over the PlayBook project after it was released back in 2011.




We all know how BlackBerry's PlayBook has played out in the market, with the company pushing it as the "first professional tablet" but with a bunch of delays, it never took off. It missed huge features such as e-mail and more, something RIM (the name of the company at the time) made a very bad bet on. The company saw a near $500 million writedown on the tablet, which didn't help.
