Early this week, Cisco unveiled the new Cisco Cius Android tablet at the CiscoLive event in Las Vegas. While there has been no mention of the price of Cisco Cius nor the launch date, we must tell you that the tech specs will make you want one right now.
The Cisco Cius contains a 7-inches display packed with features that will be suited for a business audience. As Cisco has put it, this shall be the first Android based tablet that is targeted at the business users. The device measures 1.5 pounds and will contain several standard Cisco features like Cisco Quad, Cisco Show and Share, WebEx, Presence. An instant messenger application is also offered as is support for 720p video capture and Cisco Telepresence solution.
The Cisco Cius is run on a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor and contains a 32 GB internal memory, and support for 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G connectivity and will run internet on Mozilla browser. Cisco has not mentioned who the cellular partner for the Cius Android tablet shall be.
How do you find it? Will you be going for one?
You may no longer need to connect your Flip camcorder to the computer to transfer pictures. Cisco has revealed its plans to introduce a new Wi-Fi enabled version of the popular Flip camcorder that will allow users to wirelessly transfer pictures and videos.
While the exact launch date is not known as yet, we hear that the company is aiming at a holiday season launch. Ideally that should happen in the early part of the holiday season since that will give users a chance to buy the new camcorder before they set off on their vacations.
We are not sure about other features that the new Cisco Flip camcorder may come with. However, as Ubergizmo points out, a little bit of on-the-spot video editing features would be pretty handy.
So who is not in the tablet race right now? Looks like everyone’s here already. A recent rumor doing the rounds is that Cisco may be contemplating a tablet PC of their own. As of now, we do not have any information whatsoever regarding the price, technical specifications or launch date.
However, what we do know is that it shall be an Android based device that shall be targeted at the business users. Some features that are expected to come with the new Cisco tablet are a front camera, dual microphone with noise cancellation, VPN access and support to WebEx for meetings.
Cisco has not commented directly on this and so the news needs to be taken with a bit of skepticism though it appears likely that such a device could be in the works.
Pictures of Cisco’s new line of flip camcorders are just being revealed from a Best Buy store. In a short post, Engadget writes,
“Well, it’s a Flip camcorder, and there’s a sliding element to it — amazing deduction skills, we know. Perhaps Cisco has something up its sleeve soon?”
While we are not sure about technical specifics of the device, here is what could be gathered from one of the pictures leaked
- HD 720p (1280 x 720, 16:9 widescreen)
- 30 fps
- 16GB built-in memory
- Up to 4 hours of video
- H.264 video format
- AAC stereo audio in MP4 format
Business Insider has confirmed that a new model of flip camcorders from the stables of Cisco is on its way and it shall launch during the 2010 NAB show scheduled to be held between April 10th and 15th.
Details about the flip camcorder are pretty slim at the moment, but from what we are guessing, it might support 1080p. Dan Rayburn from StreamingMedia has promised to reveal more specs about the device when he is able to get hold of a device…which we assume is going to happen soon.
