Vizio’s 8-Inch Gingerbread Tablet Released

August 15, 2011

Good Android tablets can be pretty expensive. While it’s easy to find the cheap Chinese ones, the really good stuff is usually priced upwards 400 dollars. The cheapest right now of the bunch spearheaded by the iPad 2 is the Asus Eee Pad. Well, that’s going to change with the release of the Vizio 8″ Tablet.

The name may not exactly be very original but it looks to be positioned by its Irvine, California-based maker to sell on the market, mainly through price. Right now, the tablet is priced at a hundred dollars below the Eee Pad – an affordable  $300 at Sam’s Club and Walmart, while a bundle can be purchased from Vizio directly, with the addition of a stylus and case.  The price is a bit of a surprise since the original pre-order price was around $400. The current price makes it a bit more attractive to the consumer.

So what exactly will a buyer get for his three hundred bucks? Well, first of all, you’ll be getting an 8-inch 1024×768 display. This matches it up with the iPad 2′s screen. However, that’s where most of your money is probably going to. The CPU is a single-core 1GHz Armada 600 processor, not the usual dual-core Tegra 2. You really don’t need it though for a tablet. However the memory and storage also take a budget hit. You’ll be getting 512 MB of RAM and 2 GB of storage that can be upped via a microSD port allows to 32 GB.

Other features include the standard 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, micro HDMI, a 3.5mm headphones jack, and accelerometer.  Plus the non-standard three-speaker surround sound and sensor-based backlighting and pre-loaded Internet Apps Plus suite, that lets the tablet become a universal remote and has the usual suite if apps. All of these run on Gingerbread  - which is a downgrade from the usual Honeycomb for the high-end tablets.

Still, overall, it’s a decent device for its price range. But if you have an extra hundred or so dollars, it would be better to use that to go to the next level.

    ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!
    they can hear and see what your visually thinking
    this is the dead truth

    the reason alot of asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with asians and dont associate with non asians very much is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read read minds, if all over a billion asians were to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non asians, associate with non asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then alot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they dont like or find astonishing or funny, and if they were all to associate with non asians alot more there would be alot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those other people think things they dont like, so they only associate with asians so there wont be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place

    think about it, its not normal how alot of them act, and the entire way they act is all to hide their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    every single asian on the planet is hiding their mind reading abilities, they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives!
    thats why nobody knows about it!

    try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around asians, and try looking for asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they dont like, find funny or astonishing
    it still happens despite a large number of them having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen alot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, its not uncommon!

    i know this sounds crazy, impossible, and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISNT CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    you have to spread the message!!!
    the world has to know about this!!!!
