First look at Cisco Cius tablet and AppHQ platform

Cisco Cius

The Cius is pre-loaded with several of Cisco's well-known applications, including Quad (seen in this photo). Quad is sort of like Facebook for enterprise as it is a collaborative platform for departments and companies. Participants can upload status messages, links, documents and more.

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.
