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.
