It looks like Vizio is breaking into the Windows tablet world in a big way with the introduction of its creatively-named Vizio Tablet PC. According to Engadget, this new slate will offer the full Windows 8 experience on an 11.6-inch, 1080p screen and will include AMD internals in the form of a dual-core, 1GHz Z-60 chip. Another nice point is the fact that the new tablet is running a clean install of Windows known as the Microsoft Signature installation — so there shouldn't be any of the typical manufacturer bloatware on this machine. Other specs include 64GB of solid-state storage, 2GB of RAM, micro HDMI and micro USB ports, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. There's no word yet on pricing or availability, but we should get our hands on this tablet later in the week on the CES show floor. In the meantime, we've reached out to Vizio for more details on this and its other CES announcements and will update with more details when we have them.
