Cisco announces Cius Android tablet

Last week, Cisco Systems announced that it will enter the tablet space with a 7-inch Android tablet called Cius. According to an article from Fast Company, the device is designed for professional use rather than for consumer use so it is not likely that it will compete directly with the iPad.

The Cius includes 32GB of memory, an SD slot for adding additional memory, and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor. It also has front and rear-facing cameras for teleconferencing capabilities and a docking station for a faster wired ethernet connection.

The Cius will be available in the first quarter of 2011.
