Toshiba and Vizio are tipped to be next aboard the Google TV train, with products supporting the smart TV platform expected to debut at CES 2011 in January. The news, leaked to Bloomberg by unnamed sources, could see Google TV reach a new, lower price point thanks to Vizio's work at the budget end of the HDTV spectrum.
I have mentioned before that Vizio is typically the top brand in the US flat screen TV market for good reason. The sets have some nice features at prices that are much better than the competition typically. Other makers like Sony and Samsung should listen up and watch with Vizio is doing, consumers aren’t buying just based on name anymore.
It's a day full of fun, in the USA at least, so much of it I can barely contain my joy for it all! Two more Samsung Galaxy Tabs available, one from Costco, the other from Bell. LG announces a new phone by the name of APEX, and Giorgio Armani releases their very own Samsung Galaxy S. Then some sweet concepts: a Porsche phone, a hybrid AMOLED/E-Ink phone, a Mercedes-Benz Biome concept car grown in a nursery, and a solar powered umbrella. Evan's "Week with the HTC HD7" continues with "the Apps," Don decides on Vizio, and Phillip marks the recession of the Social Tide with one big delete button. All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!
Whenever I talk about HDTVs with other tech lovers, they typically point to Samsung LED-LCDs or Panasonic plasmas as the go-to televisions for the person looking for the best picture. And as an owner of a Panasonic plasma, I never protest. My 50-inch HDTV has been a treat to have in the house.
But when I get my hands on my next HDTV, I won’t be buying a Samsung LED or even a plasma to replace my beloved Panasonic. No, when I finally head to the store to get my hands on a new HDTV, I’m going to buy a Vizio set.
It's hard to not be a fan of Vizio TVs with their good performance and great pricing. The TV company has put a hurtin' on other major TV makers over the last few years grabbing up a large share of the market thanks to very competitive pricing. Vizio has announced that one of its most popular lines of TVs is now getting 3D models.
Vizio has pulled the wraps off a cool new portable TV for anyone who wants to be able to watch TV on the go. The set has a 7-inch screen that uses LED technology for the backlight. The resolution of the little portable screen is 800 x 480 and it's under an inch thick.
Vizio has become one of the largest HDTV firms in the country on the back of its lower priced sets that offer lots of high-end features without driving the cost up. The company has announced a new line of HDTVs that offer some interesting features. The new line includes the XVT553SV, XVT473SV and XVT423AV HDTVs all offering similar features with different screen sizes.
Welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. By now, you've probably finished your dinner, and you're sitting back to get a recap of some of the other stories that have made the rounds over the Interwebs. Well, that's exactly why we're here. So, sit back and enjoy. To start us off, we have the Best of R3 Media. We've got the first images of the Samsung Fascinate, along with Hulu Plus getting announced, and to wrap it up we've got some more Verizon iPhone rumors for you. And then in the Dredge 'Net, it looks like Google's back in China, and there's a real flying car.
Rumor after rumor, all of which were pointed at a paid version of one of the Internet's favorite media-streaming sites. And today marks the day you can put a big red 'X' on your calendar, because Hulu Plus is finally official. There's plenty of details to be had at the moment, and yet they're all dangerously scarce at the same time. Some of the rumors have turned out to be true, while still others are surprises.
When someone says Vizio, more than likely the first reaction is to start asking about HDTVs. Today, Vizio has announced that they're going to release a wireless router with WiFi /n capabilities, which will feature (at least to our eyes) the same aesthetic approach as their HDTVs. The router is all set to feature the faster wireless standard, but it also shoves a few other features in there that make us question what we'll spend our next $100 on.
