VIZIO’s 8-inch Android Tablet to Launch Summer 2011 for $349

Apparently VIZIO is really close to launching their new Android tablet that they gave everyone a glimpse of at CES 2011. The tablet is popping up in a video by NBA player Blake Griffin, is getting coverage by Scobleizer, and is being prepped for sale at Walmart. The two attached videos should get you up to speed on what the tablet provides, but we like the fact that it offers 3 strategically located speakers that activate depending on orientation and that it includes a universal software remote app that functions in tandem with its built-in IR transmitter. The price isn’t bad, too at $349. FYI, the VIZIO tablet will not launch with Honeycomb at the start, but will receive an over-the-air update once VIZIO feels it is stable enough for consumers — plus, VIZIO is also tweaking/simplifying the Honeycomb UI to provide users a “less cluttered” experience.
