In an interview with The Australian Financial Review, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins says the iPhone is now out-of-date.

According to the CEO, the latest wave of smartphones including the Galaxy S 4, have eliminated the hold Apple had on the smartphone market.

Apple did a fantastic job in bringing touch devices to market ... They did a fantastic job with the user interface, they are a design icon. There is a reason why they were so successful, and we actually have to admit this and respect that,” Mr Heins said.

“History repeats itself again I guess ... the rate of innovation is so high in our industry that if you don’t innovate at that speed you can be replaced pretty quickly. The user interface on the iPhone, with all due respect for what this invention was all about is now five years old.”

Apple's iOS interface has remained fundamentally unchanged since the original iPhone. Do you think it's time for a change? Is the company really falling behind other manufacturers? Let us know what you think in the comments.
