Cisco Cius: Made for Business People and not for ANGRY BIRD Gamers

So here comes a newly launched tablet, the Cisco Cius. Many would say Cisco is already 40 years late to join in the arena of tablet wars. But I would say, they are just at the right time. If they were late then why would they praise HP TouchPad that was just launched recently and I never heard anyone say they are too late?

Anyway, Cisco Cius was made for business people and not for people who just want to buy a tablet and play ANGRY BIRD and/or brag to their friends about their new cool gadget.

Cius uses Google Android software which is used in a number of smartphones and a growing number of tablet PCs nowadays, which will also allow the company's business customers to tap into the growing Android developer community, which is developing new business-class products.

I am sure if you are a business man I am sure this tablet will awe you because it has front- and rear-facing cameras that record in high definition for video conferencing meeting and a 7-inch high-resolution screen. The device will be integrated with Cisco's TelePresence video conferencing system to provide one-click access to video conferences. And it will also be integrated with the WebEx meeting products. Cius tablet can connect to the Internet via Wi-Fi or whether you are on the road, it is not a problem because you can also connect through a 3G cellular network.
