Vizio is another player in the Android-powered tablet market, and this time around they have another model that has arrived at the FCC, where it will be known as the VTab. Having made an appearance in the form of an early build at CES earlier this year in Las Vegas, it seems that the few months that has passed since then has been put to good use, where it has been refined to get ready for a general release. Going by the model number VTAB1008, it has picked up FCC approval for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, although there was not a mention of 3G support in any way.
Taking on a slightly different form factor (we are talking about 8″ here instead of the regular 7″), the VTab is tipped to come with 4GB of internal memory in addition to a 1GHz processor, HDMI output and USB support in addition to a microSD memory card slot.
No idea on how much Vizio will price their VTab, but if their range of above average TVs are anything to go by, then one can be quite optimistic to say that their tablets, too, will be competitively priced. Engadget did spot the VTAB1008 in Walmart’s inventory system for $349 earlier on, so this might help usher in the bang-for-your-buck tablet industry.
