They'll be bringing a smartphone too, on the Android platform.
It seems our little Vizio is finally growing up. What started as a solid budget TV company has grown into what may soon be an electronics powerhouse.
The company will be introducing not only a smartphone at CES later this week, but a tablet as well. The tablet will be named the Via, and will boast an eight inch touchscreen high-resolution (but not high-def) screen, three speakers and built-in Wi-Fi.
Apple's iPad tablet has seen great adaption rates by home theater enthusiasts - after all, who can say no to a large touchscreen remote? Since Vizio is a TV maker already, integration of their components with the new tablet is sure to be top-notch.
There's no word on pricing for Vizio's tablet yet, but we do know that both products are set for a summer 2011 release.
