Cisco’s pricing for their Cius video-conferencing and collaboration tablet has been outed by a FAQ sent to developers, and it won’t have mercy on your wallet. Expect to shell out a whopping $1000 for this thing once it sees limited availability sometime this quarter. I can’t say we’re surprised by this revelation considering who will be scooping this thing up: businesses who need more than just a phone call and email to get things done while they’re away from the office.

Everything else in the FAQ details everything we’ve heard about the tablet before so we won’t make much noise about it ourselves. One particular possibility is that Cisco might be making their mobile software solutions available to every Android phone , not just the Cius. That’s not a confirmation at all, but we’ll be excited if they bring their offerings to the market as they’re a major player in providing solutions for enterprises of all sorts. If you haven’t already caught up on what the Cius is and what it will enable you to do (and if you need to know why this will cost you twice the price of an iPad), read the full FAQ courtesy of CrunchGear.
