We got another chance to spend hands on time with the upcoming Vizio Tablet, and we definitely like how this device is coming along. We saw the product at CES in January but now it’s confirmed to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will cost $349 when this slate ships in July. That’s a pretty low price, but what do you get for your money?
Designed with entertainment in mind, the Vizio Tablet features an 8-inch, 1024 x 768 display and sports three speakers to provide stereo audio. Also included is an HDMI port to output video to HDTVs, along with an IR blaster that allows the tablet to double as a universal remote for your TV and other home theater gear.
In addition, this tablet will tap into Vizio’s Internet Apps Plus ecosystem, which is meant to offer a similar interface on both the portable device and Vizio HDTVs. Like how all this sounds? Check out our hands-on video of the new Vizio Tablet and let us know what you think.
