The Cisco Kid to Deliver a Tablet

With built-in teleconferencing and desktop integration features the tablet Cius from Cisco starts to present a different form of competition to the ipad and could make it appeal to business users. Then there is USB and Ethernet ports, WiFi or 3G connectivity options, a 7” screen, forward facing cameras that can record video at resolutions up to 720p at 30 frames-per-second and a back-facing camera with a 5-megapixel camera for VGA resolutions. The Android tablet will have hardware buttons for navigation and menu access as well as a touchscreen.

This could also give a great opportunity for information companies to develop mobile solutions and apps for the Android platform. The Cius is planned for release in early 2011 and no doubt will arrive before anyone can spot anything from Plastic Logic.
