Cisco’s CIUS tablet now in Verizon’s LTE list

Cisco’s CIUS tablet now in Verizon’s LTE list
Verizon US announced their 4G LTE network, and obviously to push that you’ll had to have lots of LTE-enabled devices to push sales. Now, besides lots of LTE tablets and smartphones, Verizon has also added Cisco’s rare business-savvy Cius tablet onto LTE starting this March, besides Cisco’s second generation Integrated Service Router.
Verizon says it’s got about one-third of the US covered with LTE, which offers downstream speeds between 5Mbps and 12Mbps, and will have the other two-thirds covered by 2012. If you’re lucky enough to live in that first one-third, the Cius tablet, which sports a 7-inch diagonal touchscreen and weighs about 1.15lbs, could become your preferred form of business communication as it offers HD video streaming, real-time video, and multi-party conferencing. Very business stuff here.
Cius will also have 3G capabilities for those unfortunate souls operating outside of the LTE sphere, just in case you need to go outstation with it. Verizon isn’t ready to settle on a data plan for the tablet, as its main functions have potential to eat up a ton of bandwidth, but they’re pretty sure employers will be the ones footing the bill.
