    Where does it say it runs BlackBerry 10?

    Indeed. It most likely will run Tizen or Android.

    It doesn't run BB10. They want it to sell.

    It's Android plus BB security enhancements.

    Apparently Android *can* be made secure... Who'd have thunk it...?

    These are some very poorly-written articles. This is a Samsung product, and Samsung went to IBM and SecuSmart (before BB purchased the company) for additional software/security pieces. BB's only involvement was buying SecuSmart. To classify this as a BB product is like calling my car an Alpine because that's what kind of car stereo is in the dash. Or, maybe calling it a Harmon Intl. because I have a JBL stereo in the dash.

    If this was a BB product, it would have BB's name on it. It doesn't. it's a Samsung tablet running Android with TouchWiz, IBM's MDM software, and SecuSmart technology that allows it to communicate with other SecuSmart devices securely.

    Inherently it can't. Unless you replace Linux kernel with QNX. That would be significant.

    Clearly the German security authorities don't agree.

    As was said by someone on another thread, only here on CB do folk insist that Android is inherently incapable of being secured.

    That's because BB10 and especially QNX is 10^99% secure (based on CB threads). Using this logic means that other operating systems are 10^99% less secure and that's pretty much equal to security of frozen strawberry.

    Actually. These are some very poorly-written articles... based on a *very* well crafted BB press release.

    The PR is written in such as way as to "lead you to believe" that BB know-how and technology is key to the security aspects of this new tablet. That's untrue because, as you say, BB's only involvement was to be smart enough to buy the company behind it... but nothing in the PR is an actual lie.
