The HD Media Station is a dock designed to turn the Cius into an office workstation and advanced telecommunications system, complete with a phone handset. It also adds gigabit ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm heaphone jack, DisplayPort, and a PoE (Power over Ethernet) jack.
Cisco has written its own drivers to support USB host devices, a mouse, and a keyboard. When docked, the tablet can output upscaled video via DisplayPort. Unfortunately, the tablet’s output looks disappointing: Text seems grainy and overblown, a situation made even worse because Android 2.2 isn’t optimized for scaling to large screens.
