Cisco Cius Tablet Hits the FCC

Cisco is more of a quiet player in the Android world right now. They’ve long been talking about their Cius tablet but have been taking their time on engineering it. The tablet is set to be part of a bigger office package for business professionals who need a desk phone that’s more than just a desk phone. It was originally slated for a 2011 release and it looks like we may be seeing this thing before fall if this FCC approval is anything to go by.

The listing also brought to surface new details. Firstly, it most likely will be a WiFi-only device. It’s a tablet that was designed with the desk phone in mind so we can’t really complain about that. More interesting than that, though, is that the documents were submitted by OpeanPeak. If you don’t remember, they’re working on a tablet for AT&T but we haven’t heard a peep about their progress since September of last year. Take a look at the full FCC listing for yourself if you’re curious. [via Wireless Goodness]

    Does this mean we’ll finally get a fracking Cisco VPN client for Android?

    I work for a Cisco Premier Partner. We recently have a meeting with out reps and they couldn’t stop talking about Android this, Android that. Apparently they have taken quite a liking to the platform and this tablet is just the first step in the roadmap. The goal is that all services, including CUCM, are supported on Android. The most important thing I learned was that they will NOT be supporting Microsoft mobile platforms.

    I can’t imagine doing work on a small screen. This might as well be a mobile phone (cell phone for the americans) that is able to be docked to a desktop phone!

    It is froyo. It docks on the handset base which has kvm connections on the back. Lastly it will have an anyconnect vpn client which will ship to native android as well. Cool little product.
