    Based on the current price of a Galaxy Tab 10.5, you'll be paying nearly £1,300 just for the security features - that seems like an absolutely crazy premium to me!

    What did i miss...??

    Blackberry are pretty desperate right now and I guess they are trying to sway their old customers: Business users.

    Low volume with high profit......another stab at staying afloat.

    The government certifications that are a) costly (although not that costly) to achieve, and more importantly b) give you pretty much carte-blanche to charge whatever you want. You make the only security certified tablet on the market, you can pretty much charge what you want.

    This is only for Government and Enterprise. This Tablet will not be available for the consumer market. It's also going to be the most secure Tablet on the Planet. Secured by BlackBerry. But its a Samsung Tablet, not a BBRY.

    That's got to be the clumsiest portmanteau I've ever seen

    portmanteau (i/pɔrtˈmæntoʊ/, /ˌpɔrtmænˈtoʊ/; plural /ˌpɔrtmænˈtoʊz/ portmanteaus or portmanteaux) or portmanteau word, also called a blend in linguistics,[1] is a combination of taking parts (but not all) of two (or more) words or their sounds (morphemes) and their meanings into a single new word
