VIZIO Announces Future Android Tablet Lineup, Tegra 4 Included
VIZIO announced plans to bring to the market two new Android tablets: one 7-inch Tegra 3 tablet and one 10-inch Tegra 4. The 7-inch Tegra 3 model is similar to the ASUS Nexus 7, with features including a 7-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 16GB storage, 1.2MP front-facing camera, Android 4.2 and Micro USB. While I think it’s a bit late in the game for this particular 7-inch model, VIZIO looks to have a winner on its hands with their 10-inch model.
VIZIO’s 10-inch model is expected to feature a 10-inch 2560×1600 display, Tegra 4 SoC, 32GB storage, front & rear cameras, Mini USB, Micro HDMI and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. These specs are a bit more like it for a device slated for a “first half” of the year release.
Knowing VIZIO, these tablets will appeal to the mass market by being both affordable and compatible with other VIZIO products such as TVs and possible the Co-Star (VIZIO’s Google TV set top box).
It’s also important to note, both tablets will be fitted with stock Jelly Bean. I see more manufacturers opting for the “pure” Android experience which has me feeling all warm and fuzzy.
