This looks interesting, particularly since I have a Vizio TV. 4:3 aspect ratio-why? and 3 speakers!
Vizio, the budget-friendly television maker known for great prices and quality technology, just proved it is possible to create an Android tablet with few compromises for $350 with the launch of its 8″ slate today. I got a first look at the device at the CEA Line Show in New York City yesterday afternoon so here are some early photos and specs.
The Vizio VTAB1008 tablet has a 8″ 1024×768 capacitive touch screen display with a 4:3 aspect ratio that is more typical of standard TV content than widescreen movies. When I first saw the screen, it immediately made me think of Barnes & Noble’s Nook Touch, which is also slightly wider than other e-readers. It is powered by a 1 GHz processor with 512 MB of RAM and 2 GB of internal storage that can be expanded via the external SD card reader that can accept up to a 32 GB card.
