[CES 2013] Earlier today we mentioned Vizio was introducing its first Windows 8 tablet, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some Android-related news for us as well.
Vizio has now announced a new 7-inch tablet featuring a Tegra 3 processor and pure Android experience without the bloat. Interestingly enough, one of the key features of the Windows 8 tablet was it was also a pure Windows 8 experience, with no vendor-specific junk thrown in.
Besides a Tegra 3 processor, we also know the new tablet will feature Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 16GB of storage, and a 1.2MP front-facing camera. Vizio has focused on keeping their tablet small so it can be easily operated with one hand like that of the Kindle series e-readers.
There continues to be a massive push by various vendors into the 7-inch market, and many of these options are very competitively priced. As for Vizio? The tablet is expected to drop in the first half of the year, but we have no info on price tag just yet.
Looking for something with a bit more OOMPH? A Tegra 4 10-incher has also been announced by Vizio, though no specifics on price or launch date.
