It wasn’t too long ago when the Vizio tablet hit the FCC, but now a spokesperson has confirmed to Engadget that the 8-inch tablet will be coming to the states sometime within the end of next month.

First revealed at CES 2011, the 8-inch tablet will include a 1024x768 resolution screen, a 1GHz CPU, microSD, micro USB, HDMI and even an IR blaster for TV remote functionalities.   According to Electronista, the tablet will reportedly have three speakers for louder and enhanced audio.

The spokesperson has also confirmed that the tablet will indeed ship with Gingerbread, but an upgrade to Honeycomb at a later date is still under consideration. Apparently, the Honeycomb OS is not as seen as sufficiently stable to Vizio, so the Vizio tablet will be sticking to Gingerbread for now.

Wal-Mart leaks were right on the spot with the launch price of $349, but the expected launch date of June 26th may have been a bit premature. We may have to wait until the official launch of the Vizio tablet before we get more details on its specs and TV remote/set-top box capabilities.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
