BlackBerry discontinuing effort to move BB10 to PlayBook

CEO Heins said "spent a great deal of time and energy looking at solutions that could move the BlackBerry 10 experience to PlayBook, but unfortunately I am not satisfied with the level of performance and user experience and I made the difficult decision to stop these efforts and focus on our core hardware portfolio." Company says it will support PlayBook on existing software platforms and configurations.
