Visio and Messaging Features


Jan 2, 2011, 10:45 PM
Visio should embed its new 'Droid smartphone with killer apps, both to start immediately building the brand’s reputation for mobile innovation, and to engage the consumer for help on critical features for the device's market penetration. Messaging will be the key driver of mobile social media, so Visio should partner with the new companies that are creating the most innovative and robust text/IM products and feature sets, including chatting with peeps you see but don't know; group chat; and cross-platform messaging.

Judging by they're quality of TVs, I am very excited to see this handset in person.

My guess is Verizon. ATT is Iphone centric, Tmobile is HTC centric, Sprint is well, Sprint. Although Tmobile started the whole Android thing, Verizon seems to have taken it to another level. This definitely looks like a droid phone. It sucks that phones aren't more cross network capable, I wish all the companies would just switch to the same network, it's fix coverage issue, then they would compete based on what they should compete for anyway, pricing and customer service. one can dream can't they.

It is all about the carriers. Making a quality value phone would be nice. But if it's on a carrier for $100 a month? How is that any different than Apple.

Could be T-Mobile, as part of the Walmart Family Mobile MVNO. After all, Vizio was sold there long before other stores like Target began picking them up.

Good guess, except, Walmart also sells the iPhone and they keep all their bases covered. First place I've seen Vizio sold has been Costco.

Hey this is cool! Vizio has always done right by me, great build quality on there tv's, hope that carries over to the cell phone.
