Technology trade shows like CES are where the biggest players of the industry can show off their innovative skills, but also where the little guys can enjoy their 15 or 20 minutes of fame. Now we wouldn’t go as far as to call Vizio a small company but when it comes to Android tablets, they haven’t shown they’re built for greatness either.
However, this year’s CES may be Vizio’s time to shine. The California-based electronics producer has unveiled two Android-based tabs — one with a 10.1-inch display and a 7-incher. The first has some bonkers specs, including a 2,560 x 1,600 pix res panel, Android 4.2 and 32 GB of internal storage.
To top it all off, the unnamed slate is set to come with a Tegra 4 CPU under its hood, so it might well be the snappiest such gadget in the world.
As for the 7-incher, that’s going to be much more modestly spec’d and it’ll target Amazon’s Kindle Fires and Google’s Nexus 7 in the pricing department. There’ll be an “old” Tegra 3 SoC inside, an HD display, 16 GB of on-board storage and “vanilla” (as in stock) Android 4.1 or 4.2. No exact ETAs have been mentioned yet, but both tabs are expected during the “first half” of 2013. Nice!
