As the International CES kicks off for 2013 many, many product launches are ensuing. Vizio is jumping into the Windows 8 tablet waters, which, is sure to be a hot trend this year.
Vizio’s tablet, a 11.6-inch slate packing a 1080 display, is possibly the first powered by AMD. Vizio is packing in the dual-core AMD Z60 “Hondo” while the Intel Atom Clover Trail CPUs are prevalent in other Windows 8 slates.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II comes packing a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display at 1,280 x 720, 3,100mAh battery and a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor.
…it offers best-in-market performance, an S Pen experience that blows its predecessor out of the water, a solid OS in Jelly Bean and plenty of other features that will make this a tempting offer to even the most petite-handed individual. To do so in a package that’s actually thinner and narrower than the first Note is a tremendous accomplishment, and one that’ll be hard to match. Get ready to have your cake and eat it too.
Today is the last day to pre-order the Note II with US Cellular. According to the website the $299.99 is exclusive for pre-orders. We are unsure of the price online and in stores beginning tomorrow, Friday 10/26/12.
