Cisco launches two tablets, one Android and the other Linux

Cisco has announced two tablets, the Cius which runs on the Android OS, Home Energy Controller that runs on Linux. Both of these will serve niche purposes, so don’t expect them to become iPad competition. The Cius is primarily for business people, allowing them to have productivity and connectivity at their fingertips, with a host of Cisco applications. The Home Energy Controller does exactly what its name says it would do, and is a countertop device that lets users control their energy costs/consumption at home. Pricing or availability for either are still unknown.
