It comes with 32GB memory inbuilt, SD card slot and connectivity options HDMI out port and a mini-USB port. It also boasts HD video (720p) and media station and will support Bluetooth.

Described by the firm as “ultra-portable, mobile collaboration business tablet that offers access to essential business applications and technologies.”

And it seems Cisco have gone hell for leather into the business market, creating an “app store”  specially for enterprise where Cius users and software vendors can exclusively buy and sell apps.

This strategy could help differentiate its tablet solution in a landscape marred by Apple devices which have meshed business users into a predominantly consumer space.

Furthermore the Cius will be compatible with its business hardware and software solutions, which could be another important selling point for its business clientele.

Telstra, who announced their intention to sell the tab earlier this week in Melbourne, has already stated the advantage it holds over the iPad, since users are not forced to use Apple’s software exclusively.

Cisco, which specialises in software and hardware solution for business is clearly eyeing this lucrative sector for growth potential and the Cius’ ability to sit in its newly released  IP handset station speaks volumes about the role it sees tablets playing in enterprise in the future.

Telstra says it expects the Cius to be sold as a component of enterprise IP telephony systems.

 

Businesses are expected to buy more than 10m tablets this year, accounting for more than one quarter of the market, according to Deloitte’s forecast.

The slate, which will go on sale towards the end of this year will be available in WiFi and 3G or 4G models although Telstra have yet to confirm a precise date.
