We had reported about leading Home entertainment device Manufacturer Vizio’s teasing video about their forthcoming tablet. Now reports say that Vizio confirmed not only tablets but Smartphone also.
Tablets and the Smartphones from Vizio expected to be low cost and running on Google’s Android. I think it’s mainly to attract people who can’t afford high end Smartphone and tablet like Apple’s iPad and iPhone. So the Vizio is to be rival to Apple.
The upcoming Via Phone and Via Tablet both have 1 GHz processors. The Via Phone will ship with a 4-inch touchscreen, front-facing camera, and a standard 5 megapixel camera. The Via Tablet will have an 8-inch job, WiFi, three audio speakers, and a front-facing camera. Both phones and Tablets will run an as-yet-unnamed version of Android, but it will likely be customized.
Vizio will also includeVIA Plus HDTVs and Blu-ray players, Bluetooth QWERTY universal remotes (each with a touchpad) along with dual-band 802.11n wireless for CES 2011.
Analysts say that Vizio could disrupt mobile phones and cause “some Excedrin popping” among rival executives. Vizio has managed to introduce quality HD televisions for lower prices than Samsung, and it could do the same with phones.
It’s expected that the Vizio will show off their New Devices at CES 2011, and share your thoughts and expectations about Vizio’s new devices.
