Cisco Linksys EA 2700, EA2500, EA4500Cisco has unveiled a line of "app enabled" routers.

Cisco has dubbed the Linksys EA Series "smart" routers due to their ability to support add-in apps to enhance the router feature set. However, apps for the new line will not begin shipping until sometime this fall.

In the meantime, the three new routers form the high end of a revamped router lineup that includes two current E-series products, the Linksys E1200 and E2500 and the new EA2700, EA3500 and EA4500.

As an intermediate step, Cisco will be releasing Cisco Connect Cloud apps for iOS and Android in June. These apps will enable remote access administration features for the EA-series routers. Cisco will also be updating the currently-shipping E4200 v2's firmware, so that it supports all EA series features. The EA4500 replaces the E4200v2, since they are identical designs.

The EA2700, EA3500 and EA4500 start shipping next week at MSRPs of $109.99, $139.99 and $199.99, respectively.
