Cisco Cius Android Tablet Unveiled

Cisco [CSCO] has unveiled a new Google Android based tablet called the Cisco Cius. The Cius is Cisco’s first attempt at an Android based tablet. It features a front facing HD video camera that can capture HD at 720p at 30 frames per second.

The front panel has a 7 inch high res screen Super VGA touchscreen (800 x 600 probably). On the back is another camera that has a 5 megapixel sensor that captures still images and VGA video. With the HD camera being on the front of the device it appears that it will be aimed at mobile HD video conferencing.

For connectivity it connects to all wireless networks which includes 802.11a/b/g/n and Cisco will also be adding 4G connectivity in the future for high speed mobile connections.

Dual microphones can be found in the Cisco Cius with one of those assisting with noise cancellation when making a video/conference call. An accelerometer is built in to detect the orientation of the device as well as be used in gaming we assume.

The battery lasts 8 hours on a single charge. Connectivity also includes Bluetooth and microUSB.

Trials of the Cisco Cius will begin in the next few months with a launch date of early 2011 planned.
