Blackberry still lives on today and even Barrack Obama still uses it for security reasons. After making some buzz back in MWC 2015 for an upcoming BB phone features a dual curved touchscreen like on the Galaxy S6 edge, WSJ reports that the canadian company is ready to launch a new tablet. The new tablet is called 'Secu Tablet' and is made in collaboration with Samsung, IBM and Blackberry.

According to the report, the 'Secu Tablet' will be based off the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 which itself is a very modern tablet with high end specs. On this tablets, specs aren't the highlight but the security is the key feature. Blackberry is pitching in their Secusmart encryption technology which will prevent people from snooping on the tablet, IBM in the other hand will provide a software which will allow the user to swiftly switch between work and personal without compromising the data.

Overall, this is looking to be a promising tablet for enterprise users and WSJ also says the tablet will be going for around $2,380 and will be released later in the Summer. Also, given that Samsung is in this collaboration, maybe certain features on this new tablet might just migrate to Samsung's KNOX security software.
