By the end of this year, the Cisco Cius tablet won't be available with just Verizon Wireless anymore. AT&T has announced plans for a copy of its own.

Optimized for AT&T’s HSPA+ network, this version of the Android-based slate is expected to launch at some point this fall. Aside from the network support, there aren't any changes on AT&T's edition of the 7-inch tablet.

In case you're not familiar with the 3G/4G-enabled Cisco Cius, it is intended for business-related mobile computing, communications, and collaboration. Users can work together from "virtually" anywhere by working on documents stored either locally or in a cloud, and it is ideal for video conferencing with dual front and rear facing cameras.

Other major specs include the capacitive multi-touch color display (1,024 x 600 resolution), 32GB of onboard storage space, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth and GPS.
