Cisco System announced their android tablet device – the Cius – getting on for a year ago. Since then, there’s been a lot of anticipation as to when they would start shipping. Particular interest was around the tight integration between the tablet and Cisco Unified Communications Manager which allows it to becoming a voice and video endpoint.
As of 6th April 2011, it looks like the general release is getting closer.
CRN report that the Cius is going to be made available through Cisco Master and Advanced Unified Communications partners first. According to the article, pricing is meant to be targeting sub $700 for volume purchases.
Details on the specification of the Cius are available here
We’ll do some more digging and let you know about concrete dates as soon as we can. We’d love to get our hands on a couple!
