Cisco reading a 7-inch tablet of its own?

Podcast hints Cisco may have biz-oriented tablet

Cisco may be developing its own tablet device for the near future, a supposed leak may have given away late yesterday. During the most recent episode of CNET's Buzz Out Loud, an Irish listener's e-mail response about 37 minutes into the podcast claimed that Cisco is working on a 7-inch, Android-based tablet that would most likely be used for business communication. It would probably have hardware tailored to this with a front camera, dual microphones with noise cancellation, and possible support for Cisco-oriented features like VPN access and WebEx for meetings.

The tip didn't have details as to when the tablet would come out, what price it would carry or other hard release info. However, its focus could keep the costs relatively low as it wouldn't need a significant amount of internal storage, advanced media hardware or other extras to achieve its goal as a business tool.

Cisco hasn't commented on the accuracy of the rumor.
