Cisco unveils Cius Android business tablet with front-facing camera

Cisco Cius docked in the HD Soundstation

A new business focused Android tablet has been announced by Cisco today, they call it the Cius (“see us”).  Loaded with every feature we had hoped the iPad would have, the Cius comes with HD video streaming, real-time video communications thanks to a front-facing camera, tricked out 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G/4G data and Bluetooth 3.0 so you can pretty much stay connected anytime, anywhere.   A 7-inch high-resolution LCD using contact-based touch targets, something called the HD Soundstation, which without a doubt is the best looking docking bay I’ve ever seen.  It has a “handset option” that supports Bluetooth, USB peripherals and 10/100/1000 network connectivity which essentially turns your Cius into a suped up desktop videophone.   Other than that, the little tablet weighs in at 1.15lbs, no word on price or availability yet, but we can expect it to begin surfacing in boardrooms shortly thereafter.
