Cisco, the telecommunication and networking giant might have started with the pre-order process of its Cius tablet without making much of a fuss, but they are now out to garner all the media attention possible with the Android tablet. Cisco developed an ad to bring out the capabilities of the 7 inch tablet, though if you thought the ad would depict a boardroom environment with stern looking corporate honchos peering over the tablet, you are in for a surprise. The tablet is shown being put to use as far away from a corporate environment as anyone might have thought. This when it was presumed the Cius is strictly for the business folks.
Instead, the ad shows the Cius tablet as the next gen mobile and portable tool to bring people closer to create a human network, something that Cisco has always been interested in fostering. So while a grandfather is shown going ecstatic at the sight of his first grandson from home, children in a remote village school are seen enjoying a movie via the internet.
Cisco is already accepting pre-orders for the Cius tablet, which is touted to be available from the retailers towards the latter half of this year.
