First Android Tablet to get Hulu Plus Service: Vizio 8

Vizio, best known for their reasonably priced LCD TVs, entered the Android tablet market this summer with a sub-$300 producct, the WiFi-only Vizio 8. It has an 8-inch 1024×768 pixel capacitive touch screen, 4GB of internal storage with the option to add up to 32MB using a Micro SD card, and a front-facing VGA (640×480 pixels) camera. It runs Google’s Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) designed primarly for phones and not tablets. While it might be behind the times with its hardware specs and OS choice, it has one advantage over other tablets. It is the first to be able to stream Hulu Plus video.
