First look at Cisco Cius tablet and AppHQ platform

Cisco Cius

One of the most-touted highlights on the Cius is the video conferencing and calling capabilites. Although the picture clarity quality wasn't entirely evident during Wednesday's media event (mainly due to poor Wi-Fi connectivity), the average picture is clear and quicker than many other TelePresence options.

Additionally, call connectivity is seamless between Wi-Fi/4G connections and when plugged into the dock. Nothing should change on the display unless the user does something to enact a change.

With all the new "Pads" showing up, most people have given up. There all iPad copies. Late bloomers showing up at a party. It's getting a little ridicules, every one of them are full of Apple DNA, and not much to offer. In the end, they will all end up making money for Apple. If Apple wins the patent wars, most of the clone manufactures will have to pay royalties to Apple. I only hope that something good will come out of this.
