Vizio 10" tablet removed from website as "coming soon"

by twtoombs / July 19, 2012 12:45 AM PDT

Any one notice Vizio has removed the 10' tablet from their website? Until a few days ago it showed two tablets an 8" that is no longer available at and the "Coming soon" 10". Now the only one listed is the 8" which is available at Costco for under $200. After several attempts to get Vizio to come clean and why it was pulled it is the same old Corporate b/s "We do not have any information on that".

Given so many new tablets to choose from

Can you share why it matters?

There are several reasons:
1. Vizio quality and price.
2. Ability to use SD cards to expand memory instead of being limited by built in memory.
3. Compare features with other tablets.

1. Debateable.

I won't bore you with dead HDTVs by that name.

2. Many tablets have that slot. Not something unique.

3. Again, nothing unique about this one.

Maybe we can discuss something about other tablets that have the SD card slot you crave?

And there's that other issue about how Android is the new Windows. That is, what a mess!

10.0 Tablet

Your pick is the Asus Transformer. From what I can see the Transformer has better cameras than the Samsung Galaxy TAB2. I can purchase either one for the same price. Am I wrong or does the Transformer have more built in features, ie. GPS Gyro, G sensor. I am now leaning toward the Asus. The Asus has 32GB internal memory vs 16GB for the Samsung. You still recommend the Asus, if so that is the one I am going with.

If you've been following the patent showdown in the news you'll also notice where some products were blocked. I can't guess if the particular unit you were interested in was in the legal mess but as it stands, a lot of patents and more were ignored.

The Asus Transformer I am considering is the 10.1 model EPCTF300TB1BL. Would the patent infringements matter if I purchase and receive the tablet in the next few day?

For that question, you'll need a lawyer.

But I've seen companies stop product development since it doesn't make sense to continue at that point. That is, if some app had an issue, you may get stuck with it.

I'll go with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.
