Vizio Launches New Tegra 4 10-Inch, Tegra 3 7-Inch Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Tablet
Today, Vizio announced a duo of tablets running stock Android. The first is most similar to the Nexus 10: a 10″ display with the same retina-melting 2560×1600 resolution, only this one is powered by a Tegra 4 processor.
The new Tegra 4 System on a Chip was just unveiled recently in Las Vegas. Tegra calls it “the world’s fastest mobile processor.” Among its features are the following: Cortex A15, four power cores that will have a maximum speed of 1.9GHz plus a companion core, 28nm manufacturing process, and HPL low-power with high-K metal gate.
According to The Verge, the tablet is “much more than your average iPad knockoff.” For one thing, it is noticeably light and thin, which gives the impression that it is smaller than the Nexus 10 or the iPad, two devices which have similar measurements in terms of screen size.
For its operating system, the tablet features stock Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, that is, without any custom skin overlaid. It also comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity as well as 32GB of internal storage. Two cameras are onboard, as well, although the capacities of their image sensors are still unknown.
The reports coming in from CES haven’t actually mentioned the memory card, but there isn’t much of a chance for such a slot not to be included in the blueprint. Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi wireless connectivity are present as well.
The seven-inch Vizio tablet is powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 SoC and has an IPS Display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, 16GB of storage, 1.2-megapixel webcam on the front, and runs stock Android Jelly Bean. Once it will be available the version of the OS will be 4.2.
At the moment there is no exact information regarding pricing or availability for the two Vizio tablets. But boy are we excited!
