BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) hasn’t had a good recent past in terms of market share and product popularity. At one time, it became insolvent and had to sell off its assets to survive, but things have started to roll out for the company once again. As per the report, it has launched a new tablet equipped, with high-end security.
Insights On The Matter:
The company is once again trying to grab place among business users that it used to have in old days. Along with business users, it also shifted its focus towards government customers as well.

As per the reports, it has taken help of International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) and Samsung Electronics Co. in order to develop this high-end device. It will be available this summer if everything goes as per plans. People can buy it by paying as much as $2,380. It is the second time when Blackberry has entered the tablet market.
