Vizio has announced that their new tablet (VTAB1008) is now available for pre-oder at Walmart, Costco and in a special bundle on the Vizio website. Featuring a high definition 8″ touchscreen – the Vizio Tablet is designed to deliver more choice, more fun and more freedom in a thin, ultra-light design. You can access hundreds of thousands of apps from the Android Market to enjoy movies, TV shows, music and more.

Remote Control

With the Tablet’s built-in IR blaster and universal remote control app you can master your home theater. This Vizio-exclusive app enables the Tablet to communicate with your home theater devices and control them with the Tablet. You can also set up a profile for each room in your house and then control those devices as you move from room to room. The built-in HDMI port is fully HDCP compliant so you can output HD video to multiple TVs and monitors, making it a breeze to watch HD content on your big screen HDTV.

Stereo Sound x 3

As you change the Tablet’s orientation, it intelligently transfers the sound to two of the three strategically placed speakers to deliver stereo audio in both landscape and portrait modes for movies, music, games or video chats.

Connected: WiFi, Bluetooth & GPS

Built-in 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth capability offer optimum connectivity with multiple devices. Together with the front facing camera, the Tablet is ideal for video chats. Find your way with the Tablet’s built-in GPS. It doesn’t need WiFi or 4G to operate, so even when you’re on the go, getting lost may be a thing of the past.

Flexible Storage

No need to pick favorites, the VIZIO Tablet has room for all your media. In addition to the 4GB of internal memory, you can add additional storage with the MicroSD slot. Vizio will even get you started with a 16GB MicroSD card if you pruchase the tablet in their special bundle.
