BlackBerry launches tablet with Samsung and IBM

BlackBerry has launched a tablet in partnership with IBM and Samsung, aimed squarely at government and enterprise customers and coming a few years after a failed bid in the consumer tablet market fell short.


Looking to strengthen its hand as the go-to brand for businesses, the Canadian smartphone maker unveiled its “high-security” SecuTABLET, just weeks after pulling the curtains back on a new iteration of its BlackBerry handheld. The tablet device is based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, and is being shown off by Secusmart—a company BlackBerry bought last year—at tech conference CeBIT in Germany this week.

“Security is ingrained in every part of BlackBerry’s portfolio, which includes voice and data encryption solutions,” Hans-Christoph Quelle, CEO of Secusmart said in a statement.
