Cisco’s Cius Android tablet PC

The device — called the Cisco Cius — is based on Google’s Android OS. it’s been designed to integrate with Cisco’s enterprise collaboration and communication applications, including its videoconferencing and web conferencing program, and to act as a virtual desktop client, tapping in to cloud-based applications and services.

Cisco has unveiled a tablet computer aimed squarely at the business market.

Cisco has skinned the Android OS with a UI which the company said is designed to enable users to access important contacts quickly.

Like Apple’s iPad tablet, the Cius also has an accelerometer inside, enabling the screen to be orientated in a landscape or portrait format, depending on how the user is holding it.
