Looks like Vizio has a new tablet. The VIZIO VTAB1008 is a WiFi-only device with an 8″ (1024 x 768) capacitive touchscreen display and powered by Android. Which version of Android is a mystery. Some features include a 1GHz processor, built-in GPS, Bluetooth, 2GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (supports up to 32GB), micro HDMI output, and a front facing camera for video calling.

You can also use this as a remote control for your VIZIO devices with the universal remote control app and built-in IR blaster. Sounds pretty good, but there’s no info on price just yet.

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on January 2nd, 2011

Earlier today Vizio confirmed many of the details of its Rose Bowl tablet teaser. The company is getting into mobile devices and will use Android for the Via Tablet, an eight-incher with a front camera, three speakers and Wi-Fi for Internet access. There will also be a matching Via Phone which sports a four-inch display, a back five-megapixel camera and its own front camera.

We still don’t have many hardware details, but the company promised a ‘blessed’ version of Android with support for the Market. The devices won’t ship until sometime this summer, so the tablet will likely use Honeycomb (Android 2.4) or later. One carrier has been lined already but is unidentified.

He also talks about Vizio’s desire to create products that deliver “entertainment freedom for all,” and the ability to view games on their LCD TVs or “any of their great new products, from anywhere”. In the spot, the tablet appears to stream match content directly to the device. Video below.
