Networking specialist Avaya debuted the aptly-named Desktop Video Device, an Android tablet with an 11.6-inch screen aimed at the business market that will compete with the upcoming Cisco Cius.
The Avaya Desktop Video Device works with the Avaya Flare Experience, a communications and collaboration toolset that Avaya claims “simplifies the user’s ability to access and interact with communication and collaboration tools, making teamwork more effective,” in press materials.
Through Avaya Flare, users can coordinate voice, video, emails, IM conversations, and social media with enterprise applications as well as display all relevant communications for a particular project.
The Avaya Flare Experience sits atop the Android OS, though Avaya has not disclosed which version of Google’s operating system, but the device can access the Android Marketplace.
The Desktop Video Device sports an 11.6-inch multitouch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution and 5 megapixel camera. It also supports b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0/2.1. The business Android tablet has USB ports, Ethernet jack, stereo speakers, dual microphones, and a removable battery with approximately three hours of battery life.
Avaya has not announced pricing or availability.
