Vizio Showed Interesting 7-inch Tablet at CES 2013

By Amelia Hunter

Many of us haven’t heard much about Vizio and their products, but at CES 2013 they announced an interesting tablet that attracted everyone’s attention. This nameless tablet has a 7-inch touchscreen similar to the one on the Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle devices. Scott McManigal, Vizio’s head of design, believes that people use 7-inch devices mostly for reading, so this new tablet is comfortable to hold it in one hand – for reading, of course.Vizio-7-inch-tablet

The resolution of the display is 1280 x 800, which is not bad. Of course there are smartphones with better resolution (like the Sony Xperia Z announced at the same CES 2013, for example), but for a tablet it is still not bad. The device will run on a Tegra 3, and have a 1.2MP camera (too week but whatever) and 16GB of internal storage. As for OS, as one could have guessed, it runs stock Android Jelly Bean (Vizio CEO says Android is now good enough even without any skin).

Vizio’s 7-inch tablet will be released in the first half of 2013, but unfortunately, no price details have been announced. But if the price is competitive enough, Vizio will have all the chances to beat the Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle tablets.
