Vizio 10-inch Tablet Hands-On: First With Nvidia Tegra 4 CPU

Less than 24 hours after Nvidia announced its new Tegra 4 processor–which promises twice the performance of the Nexus 10–Vizio showed off a prototype 10-inch tablet using that chip, the first we’ve seen here at CES 2013. 

While Vizio only had an engineering sample–the ports and final design have yet to be finished–the company did show off the tablet’s crisp 10-inch 2560 x 1600-pixel display, the same resolution as that on the Nexus 10, and higher than that of the iPad with Retina display (2048 x 1536). Just as impressive was the tablet’s weight, which felt quite airy; we estimate it at just more than a pound.

When the tablet comes to market–which is still unknown, as is the price–it will also come with 32GB of onboard memory, microHDMI and microUSB ports. THe tablet will also have NFC, and 5-MP and 1.3-MP cameras. The demo unit we saw was running a stock version of Jelly Bean–like its notebooks, Vizio is committed to delivering clean installs of operating systems–but the company said it would be ready for Key Lime Pie, or whatever is the latest Android OS when the tablet ships.
