Cisco quietly began taking orders for the Cisco Cius tablet this month. If you haven’t heard much about it, that’s because you’re probably not a corporate IT department. The company isn’t offering the tablet through retail channels, but instead advises customers to contact their “Cisco field representative” or channel reseller.
The tablet will begin shipping this month. Wider availability could follow later this year.
The Cisco Cius is a 7 inch Android tablet designed by OpenPeak. It features a 7 inch display and 802.1a/b/g/n WiFi. Cisco promises the tablet will feature full integration with corporate communications environments including voice and video capabilities, as well as corporate security features.
