Cisco has built an application ecosystem, AppHQ, specifically for Cisco Cius that provides new ways to create, manage and deploy tablet applications in the enterprise.
Cisco Cius, an Android-based tablet created for the enterprise, combines voice, video, collaboration, and virtualization capabilities. With Cisco Cius, organizations can deliver a tablet with enterprise-grade security, as a natural extension of the enterprise network.
AppHQ provides developers with tools and resources to create, test and market applications for Cisco Cius, and allows IT managers to control which applications can be used on the devices. Additionally, companies can create private, custom-branded application storefronts for their organizations where employees can find, publish and procure applications that complement their business environments.
Cisco AppHQ is a secure, cloud-based user storefront that provides capabilities for end users and IT managers. Cisco Cius offers integrated access to the comprehensive suite of Cisco Collaboration applications, including Cisco WebEx meeting applications, Cisco Quad social software and Cisco TelePresence.
Cisco Cius is scheduled for global availability on July 31. The estimated street price is below $750.
