Vizio’s new Smart Audio speakers mash up a Jambox with an Android tablet

Vizio has dabbled in Android before, but the Android-based product that the company’s showing off at CES 2014 was certainly a bit of an oddity — the company’s new Smart Audio bluetooth speakers embed a full display that will run Android 4.4 Kit Kat when they launch. Vizio’s offering two options — there’s a smaller version with a 4.7-inch, 1280 x 720 screen and a larger model with a 7-inch, 1280 x 800 display. It was hard to judge the performance, as these early demo models aren’t running finished software, but Vizio told us they would have hardware comparable to high-end smartphones. However, we did get to hear both speakers and they each offer a surprising amount of power for relatively small speakers.
