Cisco Preparing to Invade Apple's Tablet Turf

Cisco is planning a tablet computer of its own.

Cisco says it aims to launch a tablet computer for the business world early next year.
     

The Cius will have a 7-inch screen, making it smaller and lighter than Apple Inc.'s iPad, which launched in March. While the iPad has no camera, the Cius will have two, facing both toward and away from the user. Videoconferencing on the go will be a major focus of the product, Cisco said Tuesday.      
The Cius will run Google Inc.'s Android software, which is popular in smart phones that compete with Apple's iPhone.
     
Cisco said its goal is to sell the Cius for less than $1,000.
