Vizio brings 7-inch optimized for reading tablet to CES 2013

12
Vizio is aiming to widen its portfolio beyond just TV sets and computers, and it’s making a big step towards that by bringing a 7-inch tablet to CES 2013. Spec-wise, the Vizio 7-incher is virtually identical to the Nexus 7 tablet by Google, but it does come with reduced size for more comfortable one-hand hold for reading.

The Vizio 7 comes with the following specs:

  • Tegra 3
  • 7-inch 1280 x 800 pixel IPS screen
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • 1.2-megapixel front camera
  • stock Android Jelly Bean

Having stock Android is an interesting idea, and Vizio CEO defends it saying Android has finally grown to the point that no skin is required.

It also seems possible that the tablet could be used as a remote for larger displays in the future. Thankfully, Vizio says it will use universal technologies like Miracast for that.

The Vizio 7-inch tablet release date is set for the first half of 2013. Sadly, there is no price yet, but we would not be surprised if this manages to undercut even the Nexus 7. Here’s to hoping.
