Vizio finally launches its 11.6-inch "Windows 8 Tablet PC"

Way back in January during CES 2013, Vizio announced plans to launch its first Windows 8 tablet. Today, the company finally put the tablet on sale, over five months after it was first revealed, but now the specs on the tablet look less impressive.

Vizio's website has the detail on the tablet, which has the dull brand name "Windows 8 Tablet PC." The product, which has the model number MT11X-A1, has an 11.6 inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080. It's one of the few Windows 8 tablets that has AMD's Z-60 processor inside, which is powerful enough to support the higher display resolutions. It also contains AMD's Radeon HD 6250 on-board GPU.

The tablet comes with 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of on-board storage, and a two megapixel front-facing camera. The 1.8 pound tablet supports Microsoft Signature, which means that it will ship with no additional third party software, or "junkware" already installed. Its expected battery life is up to five hours, which is about on par with many Windows 8 tablets.

Vizio is now selling its first Tablet PC on its website for $599.99. So far, there's no word if the company will release any Intel-based tablets, nor if the company will join in launching smaller seven or eight inch tablets.
