I’d never heard of Vizio until they started selling a bunch of HDTVs at Walmart. A few years ago the Vizio’s began to fill the back wall at my local Walmart. Their cheap prices causing me to contemplate begging my wife for a man cave.
However, Vizio recently announced that they’re getting into the Smartphone and Tablet business. I can see rows of those at Walmart, each with the built in ability to be a universal remote!
The announced phone and tablet will have pretty good features that I would consider now standard like a 1Ghz processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a MicroSD slot.
They’ll also have HDMI out, HD video playback, and an IR blaster paired with their universal remote app. Business everywhere need to block the IR ports on their TVs because once this gets into the wild, you’re going to see mayhem in sports bars and trade shows every where.
Don’t know which version of Android these guys will be running. But I bet its Froyo.
