I'm Scott Stein, senior editor at CNET.com, and this is the First Look at the Vizio Tablet at the CEA Line Show in New York. Now, you wanna talk affordable, this Android Gingerbread tablet is $349. Now, that does come with 4 gigs of memory, 2 of which are assigned to apps, 2 of which are user-specified, but it does have a micro SD card slot for up to 32 gigs of add-on memory. It also has an 8-inch screen which is not something you normally see in a tablet. It affords a lot more space and has a 1024 X 768 resolution that also comes with stereo speakers that align vertically or horizontally, giving you a little more of a home theater feel in either orientation. Also, really interestingly, this acts as a remote. It actually has an IR blaster, that's the great part of it, and if you pair it with any variety of TVs, DVD players, receivers, what-have-you, it can recognize them and be used as a remote universally. Really, you don't have to use it with a Vizio TV or any other, and that's a really-- it could be a great appeal for many people. In addition to IR and Bluetooth, this Vizio Tablet also comes with video output and USB, courtesy of HDMI and USB outputs here. It's priced really kind of above the e-reader market, below what most people think of, and this is Android tablet price. Whether or not the internal storage will bother you depends on whether you're gonna think at investing in those micro SD card slots can be worthwhile, and maybe you really think of it as more of kind of a super smart remote that you also can use as a tablet. This is the First Look at the Vizio Tablet that will be available starting in July. I'm Scott Stein and this is the Vizio Tablet at the CEA Line Show in New York.
