Vizio decided that it would launch its tablets both in the 10 inch and 7 inch form factors, with stock android today at CES. Both tablets look to be competitive and able stay up to date with their un-skinned android which is “bone-stock”. Nilay Patel from The Verge talked with Vizio’s head of design, Scott McManigal, who said that the device was made primarily for the use in one hand in portrait orientation, and feels significantly smaller than the Nexus 7. The design however is not final. The specs include a Tegra 3, a 1280 x 800 IPS display, 16GB of storage, and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera. Pricing has not been announced, but it will be available in the first half of the year. Will this be enough to stand against Google’s own Nexus 7 and more importantly the iPad Mini?
