First look at Cisco Cius tablet and AppHQ platform

Cisco Cius

Here's an example of the Cisco Cius sitting in the telephone dock when connected via HDMI. Users can transform the Cius into a virtual desktop, porting a desktop over the cloud from a computer anywhere else in the world that is enabled to do so.

Powered by an Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU, the performance rate on the Cius demo tablet wasn't too shabby and it's fathomable that a customer could use the tablet for such a purpose for longer durations of time.

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.
