Although Vizio is not focusing its production on the Android smartphone and tablet market, the company recently released its first Android product, the VIZIO 8” Tablet. However, the tablet runs an older version of Android instead of the latest Honeycomb platform, which has yet to make its debut on smaller touchscreen tablets.

Vizio's tablet is powered by Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread operating system and comes with a proprietary V.I.A. Plus user interface.It features an 8-inch LCD capacitive multi-touch display with support for 16 million colors and 1024 x 768 pixels resolution. Both price and specs sheet suggest that this is a budget tablet, but for what it's worth, the manufacturer seems to care a lot how it fares on the market.

According to Vizio, the first software update for the tablet is rolling out as we speak, probably in stages, and promises to fix several bugs and to improve the overall performance of the device.
