"The Vizio XVT3D6SP series is billed as a complement to the company's new Android phone and tablet. It boasts a custom Google TV interface and a beefed-up version of VIA (Vizio Internet Apps), our favorite Internet TV suite of last year. It also has a spiffy new remote that replaces a trendy touch screen with a much more useful touch pad, a la your favorite laptop PC. Finally it boasts passive 3D (see below) and all of the full-array local-dimming LED goodness we liked so much on the XVT3SV series. Oh yeah: it's also the first TV announced with embedded OnLive gaming."
"Keeping with other Pure Google experience smartphones, the Nexus Prime is expected to be devoid of any carrier customization or preloaded applications. Rumors also have been swirling that the first Ice Cream Sandwich handset would also be notable for another absence: physical buttons. And given that the next iteration of Android blends parts of Honeycomb and Gingerbread, it's very possible that any 4.0+ devices could operate without hard keys.
"The 'monster-size' screen will be branded as a 'Super AMOLED HD' display, matching up with previous reports of a 720p resolution. For the sake of comparison, today's top Android smart phones feature qHD screens that operate at 960x540-pixel resolution, whereas midrange devices now typically run with 800x480-pixel resolution."
Rumor has it that the Nexus Prime (or whatever name the device ends up with) will also have a next-generation dual-core processor running ion the 1.2-1.5GHz range.
Before the holiday buying season, we expect that Barnes & Noble will upgrade it, perhaps as soon as late October. We doubt the design will change dramatically (if at all), but we do think it will get a faster processor and some other small but significant improvements.
"Aside from 4G and the dual-core processors, the Droid Bionic also has 512MB DDR2 RAM; HDMI mirroring (so you can view video on both the phone and the TV when they're connected); 1080p video playback; 8-megapixel camera on the rear plus a front-facing VGA camera for video calls; Wi-Fi, of course; mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five devices (subject to carrier fees); and since it ships with Android 2.2, the WebKit browser also plays in-browser Flash video."
