Earlier this week, we saw the Vizio tablet in video when NBA star Blake Griffin was hooked up by the Vizio man with a new home theater and a tablet to control the system. I like how the tablet can integrate with the Vizio home theater and work like a universal remote control. I also really liked the cool stereo speaker setup that Vizio used so you get stereo sound in portrait and landscape modes.
If you like the tablet, you may have been pumped when the price of $349 was leaked this week for the little tablet. That will make it a bargain offering. The only thing we don’t know is when the tablet will launch. Another leak has surfaced from a kindly Walmart worker that shows a photo of the screen of the inventory system at Walmart.
The screen shot shows that Walmart will be launching the Vizio 8-inch tablet at the start of week 26. That puts the launch of the tablet at 6-weeks out. We don’t know if it might show up before then at other sellers or not. I am betting the Vizio tablet sells pretty well at $349, if that price turns out to be true.
