    Don't count BlackBerry out. The embattled Canadian mobile tech maker and communications giant is back with yet another product to wage war with iPad and other leading products in the competitive tablet arena.

    With global tablet market growth in retreat and once red-hot offerings from Apple and Samsung cooling, BlackBerry evidently sees an opportunity to shake up the market with something new and different from the pack.

    Over the weekend, the world got a good look at what's new from Secusmart, a BlackBerry company, which is presenting with IBM at CeBIT 2015. The new product in question is the SecuTABLET, "a high-security tablet based on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. With the new secure tablet for national and international public sector markets and enterprises, data that is subject to special security requirements can be used on the move."

    Interestingly, a release from BlackBerry explains, personal applications or those that are not additionally secured, such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and WhatsApp, can also be used. In short, it's a terrific offering for the enterprise space where privacy and security are bigger concerns than ever.

    "The solution is undergoing certification at the German Federal Office for Information Security for the German VS-NfD (classified for official use only) security rating," the release notes.

    No word yet on pricing or release date.

    Tablet sales are declining because these companies were expecting people to refresh their tablets every 2 years. That's not going to happen. I have three kids using iPads in school (required by school system), and I'm not getting them a new tablet every 2 years.

    But note to Blackberry: SecuTablet is a dumb name. It doesn't roll off the tongue.
