Verizon pairs Cisco Cius business tablet with 4G LTE

Cisco's Cius Android tablet still hasn't actually made it to market - last we heard, July 31 was the big day - but already the enterprise-friendly company is talking about alternative versions. Latest to get the nod is a Verizon 4G model that will use the carrier's LTE network, though bizarrely it won't do so via an integrated 4G modem. Instead, business users wanting their share of LTE speeds will have to carry a separate mobile hotspot with them too.

30-day video limit as FlipShare service phase out begins

30-day video limit as FlipShare service phase out begins

It was more than a little shocking to many in the tech world when Cisco abruptly killed the Flip line of small and portable camcorders that were traditionally some of the most popular on the market. It turns out that Cisco was in a bad way with sagging profits, and the finger was pointed squarely at the company sticking its fingers into too many honey pots in the tech world and the Flip line was the first to get the axe.

Why Cisco Shut Down the Flip Business

Why Cisco Shut Down the Flip Business

Cisco's shutting down of their Flip business after only two years says not just a great deal about Cisco but about consumer markets as a whole. Primarily that they are very hard to succeed in and should be entered only with adequate strategies. Cisco had primarily acquired Flip and the Pure Digital team in order to gain a jump start to their consumer business strategy.

Cisco Stops Flip Video Production

Cisco Stops Flip Video Production

RIP to Flip! This is so sad! I really liked this little video camera brand, but not it seems that Cisco has decided to close down shop and stop all production of all models. All those of you who've already got a camera from this line (yours truly included) will continue to receive support from the group until they've figured out what they're going to do with the brand. This may well mean that they plan on selling the camera line to another group or indeed just chopping it down to the ground. But they're so cute!

Cisco umi 1080 telepresence kit gets price & plan reduction; umi 720 and free app incoming

As far as we're aware, Cisco's umi 1080 telepresence system hasn't exactly taken the video calling world by storm - the company itself says that, since the set-top camera went on sale in October 2010, "thousands of people" have used it - but perhaps a price cut, a cheaper model and a free computer app will address that. The Cisco umi 720, as the name suggests, will demand less broadband speed for reduced image quality, with a lighter impact on your wallet.
