Vizio today announced its first foray into the cell phone market with the Via Android smartphone. The Via Phone has a 4-inch touch display. The stand-out feature of the Via is its integration with other Vizio products, such as its tablet and TVs. The company said that the Via Phone runs Via Plus, a new system meant to make media sharing seamless between various devices and form factors. For example, the phone has infrared built in so it can act as a TV remote control. Other features of the Via Phone include a 1GHz processor, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, microSD card slot and HDMI output with HD video playback. It also has a front-facing camera for video chats and a 5 megapixel rear camera for photos and HD video capture. The device will reach the U.S. via an unnamed carrier by summer 2011. Pricing wasn't revealed.
