It was only 2 days ago pre-orders for the Google TV-enabled Vizio Co-Star went live and today we’re learning that the mini set top sold out in less than 12 hours. Vizio took to their Google+ page to announce the good news, as well as let everyone know that a 2nd round of pre-orders were available. At the time of this post however, it looks like the second batch has sold out, once again showing a good amount of consumer demand for the device. That — or Vizio’s site is suffering from a small glitch.
I guess you could consider this the first real hit for the Google TV platform which hasn’t exactly been attracting consumers like flies on honey. In fact, after today’s huge announcement of Google Fiber — Google’s new broadband service — you’d be hard pressed to find any mention of Google’s red-headed step child anywhere. Funny too, seeing as how — oh, I don’t know — the launching of a new cableservice seemed like a pretty good time to plug Google TV and maybe even throw in a set top (instead of the Nexus 7 remote). But I digress…
Anyone manage to get a pre-order in for the Vizio Co-Star? Anyone planning on pre-order/buying it once it’s finally available?
