Cisco is set to bail out of another dud product after the network Company moved to drop their Cius tablet due to poor sales. Last year the Company dumped their Flip digital camera brand for the same reason.One of the first to announce that they were set to add a tablet to their product portfolio, Cisco in a blog to staff now claims that the device never caught on due to the popularity of the Apple iPad.
The enterprise-focused tablet was released last year as a mobile computing solution.
A recent survey by the company found that 95 percent of organisations allowed employee-owned devices in the workplace, and 36 percent provided full support for these devices.
When the device was released early in 2011, Cisco quickly rolled out an enterprise app platform for the Cius, which is also capable of running Android apps. The Company has also killed off their Umi video chat and Flip camera segments due to competition from lower-priced competitors.
