Cisco Ends Investment in Cius Tablet in Face of BYOD, Cloud

eWeek: Networking and collaboration vendor Cisco has cancelled all future development of its Cius Android-based tablet. The company said that the ongoing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend led to the decision to abandon the tablet. Although Cisco will still offer the Cius to customers with specialized needs, it won’t be investing time and money into upgrades for the hardware. 

Instead, the company says it plans to turn its focus to software. “Moving forward, we intend to double down on software offerings, like Jabber and WebEx, that provide the any time, anywhere, and any device experiences,” said Cisco’s O.J. Winge. “We will leverage key learnings and key collaboration experiences native to Cius in our other collaboration products. Experience matters, and Cisco is focused on empowering individual collaboration styles more effectively and securely, while providing the broadest choice of collaboration options based on preference, location and device.”
