Vizio Xvt LCD Hdtvs With Internet Apps: Tweet in Hi-Def

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 25, 2009


Shortly after hearing about HP’s Photosmart Premium with Web Touch, the world’s first printer to have its own apps, we now have Vizio announcing that their high end XVT (Extreme Vizio Technology, if you were wondering) line of LCD HDTVs will have their own internet apps as well. Yes, this is what HDTVs are for: Twitter and Facebook in 1080p. The internet-ready XVT line can connect via Ethernet or WiFi (802.11n dual-band), and will come with “a customized Bluetooth universal remote control with sliding QWERTY keyboard for easy thumb-typing.” Sweet.

Vizio has already confirmed the support of several content and service providers aside from Facebook and Twitter, such as eBay, Flickr, Netflix and Vudu. Currently, the only XVT series on sale is the 55″ VF550XVT LCD HDTV. You can order one at Amazon for $1899 (USD), or at Vizio’s online store for $2000.

The 42″ SV421XVT and 47″ SV471XVT HDTVs will be available in July for $1,200 and $1,500 respectively. If you were hoping for relatively cheaper XVTs, you’re in luck: The 32″ SV320XVT will be available in September, featuring a thin profile and full 1080p goodness for “only” $750. The 37″ SV370XVT ($850) will also be on sale in September, along with the LED-backlit 55″ VF551XVT ($2,200). Check out Vizio’s press release for more info as well as the complete roster of XVT series. Whew. Typing is exhausting.
