Head of BlackBerry’s PlayBook Tablet Is Leaving
A senior BlackBerry Ltd. executive who was in charge of the largely unsuccessful PlayBook tablet is leaving the company.
David J. Smith, an executive vice president in charge of mobile computing, has resigned for personal reasons, a BlackBerry spokesman said. The move happened within the past few weeks, said a person familiar with the matter.
The spokesman added that Mr. Smith “continues to come into work every day and is committed to working with BlackBerry through a proper transition.”
Mr. Smith couldn’t immediately be reached.
