Who will expect that Cisco is coming out with a seven-inch Android tablet called Cisco Cius?
Cius is an ultra-portable, mobile collaboration business tablet that offers access to essential business applications and technologies. Cisco is not trying to compete with other tablets in a row like Apple’s iPad and HP Slate. I don’t even think it will compete with China’s iPed, neither!
Cisco Cius Specs and Features:
• 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G/4G data and Bluetooth 3.0 to help employees stay connected on and off-campus
• HD video (720p) with Cisco TelePresence solution interoperability for lifelike video communication with the simplicity of a phone call
• Virtual desktop client which enables highly secure access to cloud-based business applications
• Android operating system, which allows access to Android marketplace applications
• Collaboration applications including Cisco Quad, Cisco Show and Share, WebEx, Presence, and IM
• 7” diagonal, high-resolution color screen with contact-based touch targets which delivers an elegant, intuitive experience
• HD Soundstation which supports Bluetooth and USB peripherals, 10/100/1000 wired connectivity and a handset option
• Detachable and serviceable 8-hour battery for a full day of work
• Highly secure remote connections with Cisco AnyConnect Security VPN Client
• HD audio with wideband support (tablet, HD Soundstation)
