If you want a decent tablet with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board, look no further than Vizio’s latest offer. I’m talking about the Vizio VTAB1008, that’s up for pre-order now, priced at $400 and coming on July 18th.

We’re dealing with an unique form factor here, as this slate uses an 8 inch display. The specs of the VTAB 1008 also include a 1GHz processor, GPS, Bluetooth and 2GB of internal memory plus a microSD card slot. Micro HDMI output and a front facing camera for video chatting round up the feature list.

Another nifty addition is the possibility of using the tablet as a remote control for VIZIO TVs and other compatible devices. The incorporated IR connection will take care of that. You must know that the VTAB 1008 comes with a free 16GB card and a folio style case.
