BlackBerry tried in the past to have an important presence in the world of tablets with its Play Book, but did not go overly well. However he has not given up and tries again. This time, it is a winning horse as its new Secu Tablet device is the product of the union with Samsung and IBM.
BlackBerry and its high security encryption
BlackBerry 3When we see the model in which BlackBerry works we will remember the tablets of Samsung. It is neither chance nor imitation. The Secu Tablet is a mix of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.5 LTE S 16GB with the high security encryption of Blackberry and IBM MicroSD technology . The name chosen for the product gives us the clue about its main characteristic, precisely the security provided by BlackBerry devices. It is not a tablet designed for domestic use but for governments, companies and all those agencies that attach great importance to this issue.
The work is being carried out Secu Smart a subsidiary of the company that acquired last year and whose specialty are security-related issues. It is expected to provide software capable of encrypting calls and exchanges of data, using the Vodafone Secure Call service.
As for IBM what will give the tablet is software to separate sensitive documents from applications such as Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp. This ensures that even if you install an infected app, the documents would always be safe.
BlackBerry announces a high price for Tablet
As for its price, Hans-Chistoph Quell vice president and director of the company explained that if the Samsung Galaxy S 10.5 costs about 500 dollars if you modify, it is logical that the SecuTablet is much higher, $ 2,380 , including the encryption card Secusmart MicroSD, application, necessary packaging, software management and maintenance contract for one year. It is expected to be ready for this summer.
It is not known if BlackBerry plans to also release a version for the general public, which is clear is that if it is at that price the general public will be greatly reduced.
