Cisco Introduces AppHQ for their Cius Tablet

Cisco is furthering the enterprise reach of their Cius tablet by introducing AppHQ, a proprietary app marketplace than can be used to generate custom storefronts tailored towards a particular business’ needs. The goal is to provide enterprise users with a secure, private market that will allow for greater productivity through business-specific applications while giving IT departments control over exactly what can and cannot be downloaded and installed to the tablet. Through AppHQ, Cisco is providing developers with tools and support for creating applications specific to their Android tablet.

The concept is a first of its kind for business and enterprise users, but AppHQ, like the actual Cius, most likely will never see a release to the general public. Cisco’s tablet has been a pretty niche product, available exclusively as an enterprise product sold to business users alone. That’s probably for the better, as it couldn’t even begin to rival the big and bad Honeycomb tablets out on the market.
