Description

VIZIO Tablet is a Tablet running Android Gingerbread powered by 1GHz processor working along with 512MB of RAM. The 8-inch capacitive touchscreen screen has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. The VIZIO slate also features a front facing VGA camera, which rounds up the spec sheet. Despite featuring Gingerbread, which is not specifically optimized for tablets, the VIZIO 8 incher has seen some heavy customization with Vizio's VIA Plus interface and it does support the Android Market, which turns it into a fully functional tablet. Connectivity is well covered with GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microHDMI and microUSB, while the 4GB of internal storage are expandable through a microSD card.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
