If that wasn’t exciting enough, the company are also planning to release a smartphone in the Summer, a smartphone which will sport a 4-inch display, Android OS, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi connectivity and also a front-facing camera for video chat – sounds pretty impressive for Vizio doesn’t it?

That’s all the details we have at the moment, until a full reveal at CES. Let us know your thoughts on both – the main factor here is price. If Vizio stay true to their roots, these devices could be very popular this Summer.
