Cisco launches AppHQ for $750 Cius tablet

Cisco has launched a new app platform for its enterprise-centric Cius tablet. Its new AppHQ includes a relatively small collection of both free and paid apps. The new app ecosystem is also designed to allow companies to create private, custom branded application storefronts for employees to find publish and download applications for business use. The AppHQ platform is developer-friendly with a range of tools being made available for developers to create enterprise apps.

The AppHQ ecosystem will include Cisco curated business and consumer applications as well as validated business-to-business and business-to-consumer applications from developer partners. Cisco will continue to add applications to AppHQ based on customer requirements. IT managers can also select from approximately 200,000 applications in the Android Marketplace and choose which apps users can install on their Cius tablets.

Cisco Cius is scheduled for global availability on July 31, 2011. The estimated street price is below $750. Basic access to Cisco AppHQ is included with every Cisco Cius device.
