Cisco reveals Android-based Cius tablet for business users


Most of the slate devices shown this year have been aimed at consumers, but Cisco has its sights set on the enterprise market. The company’s business-oriented Cius tablet is designed to accompany corporate workers during those lonely nights on the road, boasting a “virtual desktop integration with anywhere, anytime access to the full range of Cisco collaboration and communication applications.”

The Android-based 7-incher places a large emphasis on video conferencing features, including a front camera capable of capturing 720p video at 30 frames per second, along with a 5-megapixel camera on the rear for still images and streaming VGA quality video. There are also dual noise-cancelling microphones, as well as 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, with 4G coming in the future.
