Cisco To Challenge iPad With Cius ‘Business Tablet’

June 29th, 2010 06:11 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

GMGruman and several other readers noted Cisco’s announcement of the forthcoming 7-inch Android-based iPad challenger, the Cius, which “…will offer multiple networking capabilities, keyboard and mouse support, and the ability to do videoconferencing. Cisco says it will cost less than $1,000, or about the same as an iPad. The Cius will come with a front-facing high-definition video camera that can record 720p video at 30 frames per second and a 5-megapixel camera at the back that can capture high-quality video and still images. Users will be able to engage in live video calls [most likely via WebEx] when the tablet is docked or being held. Some units will be available this fall, though general availability is not expected until early 2011.”
