Not much is known about the Blackphone+, except that it's going to be a 7-inch device with 4G LTE, and will feature all the same secrecy software as the Blackphone and the new Blackphone 2.

You also get Silent Circle's 'spaces' software, which separates your work and personal life into two separate partitions, which you switch between using this icon. Each 'space' can be given its own passcode, for extra security, and you can remotely wipe the tablet if necessary.
