Smartphone business of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) was once the best in the world, especially for business users, but increased competition affected it badly. In order to regain its lost pride, Blackberry has come up with a new tablet, which is equipped with the latest technology and high-end security features.
Insights On This Matter:
The announcement came on Saturday when Blackberry stated that it had decided to extend its secure mobile device services. In order to take its services to a new level, the company launched a high-end tablet, which comprised of all the latest features that one could find in any other tablet. It was not possible for the company to develop this high-end device; hence, it took the help of two tech giants Samsung Electronics and International Business Machines.
The newly launched product of Blackberry is called The SecuTablet, which is based on Galaxy Tab S 10.5 of Samsung and Secusmart, a BlackBerry unit. It was first presented by Blackberry at the tech fair CeBIT 2015 which recently took place in Germany. From the very first look of this tablet, it seems that Blackberry has put a lot of efforts in making it secure for business owners, entrepreneurs and government officials.
BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) hasn’t had a good time over the last few years as the company went insolvent some time back, which led to complete management turn-around. Now, it has been going through a transition phase, and this high-end tablet can help the company regain its lost image in the smartphone market.
According to Secusmart’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, security covers the largest part of features that Blackberry stresses upon, and the recent product of the company is an excellent example of that. It will be made available in the market during this summer only. How users respond this time, will direct company’s future moves.
