You also get Silent Circle's 'Spaces' software, which creates separate partitions on one tablet.

Using Spaces, you could store private work documents in one 'Space', then put all your personal apps and games in another.

Different spaces can have different passcodes, letting you further lock down your personal information. You can remotely wipe the tablet, too, should it get stolen.

The Blackphone 2 is due out in July, and Silent Circle says it's gunning for the same $629 (which equates to roughly £409 or AU$809) price tag that the first Blackphone bore.
