Vizio has been busy working on a new Tablet AND Smartphone which will both feature VIA Plus, providing seamless integration with the rest of your equipment at home. This will include built-in IR beams that will let you use either as a remote control.
All backed by the Android platform, you can rest assured that these items are nothing but quality. PRNewswire gives us the following specs for the devices:
The VIZIO VIA Phone features a 1 GHz processor, 4″ high-resolution capacitive touch screen, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS, a MicroSD card slot for memory expansion and HDMI output with HD video playback. It also features a front-facing camera for video chats and a 5 megapixel rear camera for photos and HD video capture.
The VIZIO VIA Tablet also features a 1 GHz processor, with an 8″ high-resolution capacitive touch screen, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS, a MicroSD card slot for additional memory expansion, HDMI output with HD video playback, and a front-facing camera for video chats. It also boasts a unique three-speaker design for stereo audio in both portrait and landscape modes.
Personally, as an owner of a Vizio TV, I’d love to play around with both of these (or get my hands on either one) and see how well this all integrates. What do you think? Who’s gonna pick up the pair?
