Polycom mobile UC app for Xyboard tablet

Polycom Inc. has expanded the availability of its RealPresence Mobile videoconferencing software to Motorola Mobility's Droid Xyboard tablet. The free download, certified for a number of tablets, allows the devices to connect to to any any SIP or H.323-based conferencing system over Wi-Fi or a cellular network.
“We are clearly seeing the consumerization of IT and the desire for workers to video-enable their own mobile devices and familiar social applications in the workplace to be more productive,” said Sue Hayden, Polycom executive vice-president for strategic alliances. “By offering Polycom software for mobile tablets like the Droid Xyboard, , millions of people can use video collaboration as their preferred method of communicating.”

The Xyboard isn't available in Canada yet, and a Motorola Canada spokesman couldn't say when it will be. The earlier Xoom tablet is its offering here. In the U.S., the Xyboard 8.2 is now available and comes loaded RealPresence Mobile. The Xyboard 10.1 will go on sale Jan. 18.

Polycom says RealPresence Mobile, available from the Android Market and the Apple AppStore, has been downloaded more than 25,000 times in the first two months after it was released in October.
