Vizio announces 10" tablet at CES

Vizio previews new 10-inch tablet at CES
January 12, 2012 | 8:19 pm

New televisions, laptops, all-in-one desktops and a "Stream Player" set-top box that can add Google TV software to any HDMI-equipped television set -- Vizio had a lot of announcements to make at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show.

A bit more quietly, the Irvine company also previewed a new tablet that it says will launch this year as a follow-up to the 8-inch Vizio Tablet that launched late last year.
Vizio 10-inch tablet

Vizio let us get a few minutes of hands-on time with its new tablet, but details on what the device would be made up of were few and far between.

VIDEOS: 2012 Consumer Electronics Show

The new tablet sports a 10-inch touch screen and front and rear cameras, and it felt a bit lighter than the current 8-inch model.

The real question is, will it have Ice Cream Sandwich at launch? If not, when? And will the 8" tablet get an ICS upgrade as well (I hope)?

It's been nothing but crickets for a while now. I suspect that they are working on the software front to bring it out with Jelly Bean.

Or at least, that's what I want to think, since it will possibly also bring a JB update to the old 8" Vizio Tab that I have.

Maybe they have abandoned it. I've seen nothing.

I just tried their support chat, and they are unable to comment. I did pass along this thread URL for what it's worth.

Vizio has finally announced a new tablet, but it's a Windows 8 tablet:

Vizio Tablet PC Hands-On (Engadget)

Disappointing, as their Android tablet is still one of the nicer ones on the market, and I don't care at all about a Windows 8 tablet.

I guess you mean Jelly Bean, no Androd device should be announced today with anything other than JB.

Stop the presses!

I don't see it on Engadget, but The Verge says that Vizio DID announce a 10" Android tablet today!

Vizio's 10-inch tablet combines Tegra 4, stock Android, and an ultra-light body (hands-on)

No price or release date, and I'd have preferred a 4:3 aspect ratio, but the fact that it will run stock Jelly Bean is cause for celebration.

Edit: and a 7" tablet as well.

Oh boy.

Vizio. Their tvs are alright. But, I'm not fond of their other stuff.

The post you're referring to is from January of 2012, before Jelly Bean came out.
