Featuring a Tegra 3 processor, 1280x800 IPS display, 16GB of on-board storage, 1.2mp front facing camera and running stock Android Jellybean, the tablet looks to be serious competition to Google's Nexus 7.

 

"Most people use the 7 inch devices for reading, which is why the company designed the tablet for mostly portrait orientation use." Vizio's head of design, Scott McManigal said in an interview. The Tablet will arrive sometime in the first half of the year with no word on pricing yet.
