It was announced by Cisco in a blog post that Cisco will no longer be investing time and resources in to the development of their Android Cisco Cius tablet form factor, and no further enhancements will be made to the current Cius tablet from today onwards. Cisco explains:
“Moving forward, we intend to double down on software offerings, like Jabber and WebEx, that provide the anytime, anywhere, and any device experiences. We will leverage key learnings and key collaboration experiences native to Cius in our other collaboration products.”
