Cisco Cius

As many of you may already know Cisco stopped development of the Cisco Cius, a 7 inch business tablet that promised so much. I believe it under delivered primarily due to it running such an old version of Android  – 2.3. The Call Manager Features on it were great and the phone cradle that is sat in was not only cool but it is functional. I did a quick video review when I first got the unit the test if you want to check it out.

Too bad they couldn’t keep up with the speed of the market. It may be that they will focus on providing this type of functionality via software on products that are already established in this market – i.e. ASUS and Samsung, Apple etc.

I still like the size of this tablet and the call and video quality is awesome… In Canada they were asking over $1800 for the Cius – again I could have swallowed that if they were able to keep the OS up to date. Not sure what will come of mine. I may root it, but then would probably loose the call manager functionality.
