After about 3 1/2 years our Cisco Cius finally bit the dust. The Battery has expanded and popped our of the battery housing.
When I first did a review on it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPUfOHz7boc I was pleased with the quality of the phone itself, however it only ever ran Android 2.2 and was obsolete almost immediately. It locked up often and sometimes did not attach to the docking station correctly. It did not take Cisco long to take it off the market.
I am now using a DX650 that has a great quality touch screen and runs Andriod 4.1.1. After a while of use is slows down and makes it hard to even dial numbers. I just did a Firmware upgrade on it so I’m hoping that problem goes away. The screen itself does not detach from the phone, but unlike the Cius, this seems to work all of the time.
A couple of things still have me perplexed regarding the Jabber app on the phone, as it always has me as available even when my laptop is shut down. I’m not sure yet how multiple Jabber clients are handled by Cisco, as I also have it running on my cell phone. It would appear that I am always available….
