Cisco Cius

Today, Cisco has just annouced the Cius, an Enterprise-ready Collaboration tablet that will be available for shipment in Q1 2011.

With Cius, Cisco redefine the concept of mobility in the Enterprise, allowing for HD video communications, access to Web 2.0 tools, like Show and Share or Quad, as well as providing an embedded Virtual Desktop client.

The revolution will be when nurses and doctors, car salesmen, shop foremen, manufacturing supervisors and millions of knowledge workers make tablets their standard “around-the-office” platform. And this is tomorrow, with overtime replacement of current laptop and paper notebooks.

Cius is using Android OS and customers will benefit from the extensive application library for this OS.

Some of the tablet Highlights:

  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G/4G data and Bluetooth 3.0 help employees stay connected on and off-campus
  • HD video (720p) with Cisco TelePresence solution interoperability for lifelike video communication with the simplicity of a phone call
  • Virtual desktop client enables highly secure access to cloud-based business applications
  • Android operating system, with access Android marketplace applications
  • Collaboration applications including Cisco QuadCisco Show and ShareWebEx, Presence, and IM
  • 7” diagonal, high-resolution color screen with contact-based touch targets delivers an elegant, intuitive experience
  • HD Soundstation supports Bluetooth and USB peripherals, 10/100/1000 wired connectivity and a handset option
  • Detachable and serviceable 8-hour battery for a full day of work
  • Highly secure remote connections with Cisco AnyConnect Security VPN Client
  • HD audio with wideband support (tablet, HD Soundstation)

Besides all the cool Video-enabled apps, one of the most appealing feature to me is the embedded VDI client. Now with a simple docking-station using HDMI and USB or Bluetooth to your display, keyboard and mouse, you will be able to run your full-blown corporate OS from down the datacenter usign the coolest thin-client ever.

Not forgetting the built-in HD camera to join any TelePresence meeting from the field.
