End Of The Line: The All-Too-Short History Of Cisco's Cius


December 2011: More Ciuses?

By fall 2011, speculation was beginning to mount about the ultimate fate of the Cius, especially because Cisco hadn't yet released any hard numbers about how well the tablet was doing, and partners weren't exactly shouting from the rooftops about their spreadsheet-destroying Cius numbers.

Still, Cisco put a good face on the Cius, and in December 2011, Chuck Fontana, Cisco Cius product manager, told news outlets that Cius adoption had "met our expectations" and that Cisco would be releasing both larger and smaller versions of the tablet in the new year.
