Ugh... probably not going to happen given yesterday's annoucement

I hope that Cisco will move many of the features to the iPad and other Android tablets.  We love the idea of being able to have our Cius tablets participate in a Cisco/Tandberg video call across WiFi.  It works well when we're talking to suppliers and have to show them the part in question while its still part of the machinery.  We also like being able to use it to make and receive calls, participate in Enterprise presence, and other features.  Jabber and WebEx on the iPad are good... lots of feature requests being made. 

The Cius isn't critical to the success of Cisco Unified / Collaboration efforts (Microsoft doesn't make PCs).

What about opening the CIUS to the open source community to get an Android 4.0 upgrade?  I have 30 that could possibly be useful with an upgrade.

Sorry to bump and old thread but I noticed my Cius on a shelf gathering dust the other day and it got me wondering, has anyone found anything useful to do with them or should I just accept that it needs to be binned!?

Yes, they did, back in 2012. But nothing happened. You can't even root that device (due to increased security AFAIK).
