The 8-inch Vizio Tablet is now on sale now. Is the Vizio Tablet just a glorified Universal Remote control or a real iPad alternative?
Vizio unveiled their first tablet at the CES 2011 earlier this year. Now the Vizio Tablet is on sale for $298 on Amazon.com. The sub-$300 Android tablet has a 8-inch screen and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The Vizio Tablet offers a neat 3-speaker design that delivers stereo in landscape and portrait mode.
With the Vizio Tablet you can control your complete home theater with the built-in universal remote control app. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI out, 1GHZ CPU and 4GB storage (2GB User available, expandable to 32GB).
If the performance is reasonable the Vizio Tablet could be a nice addition to your Living room setup. As storage is limited the Vizio is more aimed at use at hoe. It is also not running the latest Android version for tablets, which makes it already dated from the get go.
