The Cisco Cius Tablet, a device marketed towards business and government applications, will be coming to Verizon’s 4G LTE network later this summer.
Verizon claims the HD format video conference feature of the Cisco Cius will benefit most from the carrier’s 4G LTE network, providing a clearer connection for users. Customers will also be able to add services from Verizon’s Managed Mobility portfolio, such as consumer apps from the cloud, to create a mobile office.
Verizon will market the device towards the business sector, focusing on sales associates, financial institutions, health care providers and government field workers.
Earlier this year, AT&T announced the Cius will also be coming to its HSPA+ network as well.
The Cius sports a 7-inch touchscreen display, which features a 720p high definition, front facing camera and a single button for Telepresence interoperability. The device can also be docked in the optional HD audio station, which offers a telephone handset speakerphone, HD DisplayPort and USB ports.
The Anroid 2.2-based tablet will join the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Motorola Xoom as the first generation of tablets that will be compatible with Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
