Is cisco trying to go after Apple in the tablet market after having filed an infringement suit over the iPhone trademark? This one is about as big of a rumor as they get, but it isn’t too hard to believe Cisco would want to get in on the tablet game with all the recent hubbub surrounding the iPad and the rush to get competitor’s to market. Cisco has made no comment on the matter, and no additional details are available as far as release date and pricing are concerned.
