Cisco announced today that they will be launching a new Android Tablet at business users called the Cisco Cius.
The Cisco Cius Android Tablet can be used along with a docking station that allows for real-time video chats.
The Cisco Cius packs a 5-megapixel rear camera, noise-cancelling mics, 3G/Wifi support, bluetooth, and also 4G-enabled versions will be available later.
This does seem like a great multi-purpose tablet for the office so you can easily do video-chat with your colleagues on the other side of the globe without having to setup tedious Skype with a working headset and microphone.
Other than that, this could be a great way to show your clients during lunch, your presentations/websites.
But this is the very first Android tablet we have seen so far aimed for business users and we think it could end up being highly successful as there hasn’t been many other viable options in the business world.
- The Cisco Cius is a lightweight portable business computing tablet offered with an optional HD audio station equipped with a telephone handset speakerphone, HD DisplayPort and USB ports.
- The Cisco Cius tablet features a front-mounted 720p HD camera which refreshes at up to 30 frames per second; a seven inch, high-resolution widescreen super VGA touch-target display for real-time and streamed video, and single-button TelePresence interoperability that can be utilized either when the tablet is docked, or being used remotely via Wi-Fi.
- The tablet has a 5-megapixel rear facing camera that can transmit streaming VGA quality video and capture still images, and dual noise-cancelling microphones for audio conferencing.
