Vizio has now unveiled two Smart Audio players that feature Android 4.4 KitKat, allowing them to directly play your favorite tunes and movies. The base model has a 4.7-inch screen, and then there’s also a 7-inch version.
The update brings bug fixes and performance improvements, but also a couple of nice features, such as voice control through the tablet app and a smarter YouTube app.
Let’s recap the highlights of the crazy first day of CES 2013 in an attempt to distinguish the signal from the noise. We’ll include in this roundup Nvidia’s event on Sunday evening, which could turn out to be the biggest news for Android enthusiasts at CES 2013.
Vizio is planning to release two high-end smartphones with laminated high-resolution screens this year. Unfortunately, they will only be available in China. Why?
Once you’re done drooling over Vizio’s Tegra 4-powered 10-inch tablet, you may want to turn your attention to another tablet that Vizio has up its sleeve, a 7-incher that offers a pure stock Android experience.
We’re certainly more interested in the first Tegra 4 devices that will be launched later this year, and it looks like Vizio will make the first tablet that will feature NVIDIA’s newest SoC.
Google TV has been slow going but slowly improving as well. At this year’s CES, OEMs are expected to announce new Google TV products. One of which is the popular ASUS, who did the Nexus 7 as well.
Currently, the best way to stream YouTube videos to your TV is using applications on hardware like Xbox 360 and Google TV boxes. The latest generation of TVs to be announced in 2013 will be able to do it on their own.
The Vizio Co-Star has received a software update that brings some improvements and several new features to the $99 Google TV box, such as the ability to buy and rent content from Google Play. What else is new?
Much to the dismay of many eager buyers, Vizio has suspended taking preorders for its highly anticipated Google TV set top box, the Co-Star, due to high demand. The good news of today is you can now stop scouring the web for second-hand units.
