Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has been around for a while in multiple sizes and variants, but none was specifically targeting government officials in need to handle highly classified information. Now, such a tablet seems to be closer to reality thanks to the combined effort of BlackBerry and Samsung. Dubbed SecuTablet, this slate will be a Samsung tablet with BlackBerry encryption and data protection technology built in.

According to Phone Radar, this secure tablet "will include a security card and encryption and certification software developed by BlackBerry’s Secusmart." This way, all the data stored on or transferred from the slate can be locked down, preventing unauthorized access. The main customer is expected to be the German government.

In the past, BlackBerry and Samsung worked on a secure Galaxy Tab S 10.5 as well. Now, some sources claim the upcoming SecuTablet might cost more than $2,000 USD. However, there is no official information on specs, pricing, or if regular customers will be able to buy it.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
