Back in January during CES the company that most of us know for cheap HDTV sets called Vizio was showing off some new wares that it was working on for the market. These new gadgets included and Android-powered smartphone and a tablet as well. Considering how Vizio tore up the HDTV market in short order, anything that this firm comes up with gets my attention as a product to watch. I wrote a bit about the tablet and the smartphone back in January during CES.
That Android smartphone hasn’t been heard from since January, until today. The smartphone has now crossed the FCC and appears to be headed to AT&T. The phone will apparently simply be called the Vizio Phone. The specs of the little phone aren’t that bad either. It will sport a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 854 x 480.
The processor is a single core 1GHz offering, and it will have 4GB of internal storage. The phone will also have HDMI output and operates on GSM 850 and 1900 MHz networks. There are still some unknowns about the phone at this point, namely what version of Android it packs. Froyo would be a safe bet, but you never know. We also don’t know the launch date or price. I would expect the Vizio Phone to land soon and the price should be very good considering Vizio is a low price company.
