Google announces partnership with Vizio

This weekend, “America’s #1 LCD HDTV company,” Vizio, sent their CSO out for a Rose Bowl promotional video in which the executive hints at forthcoming products that are expected to be officially announced at CES in Las Vegas this week. During the spot (embedded below), Randy Waynick is seen sitting in the stands with what may or may not be Vizio’s new Android tablet. There is also talk of an Android phone by Vizio, set to be unveiled in the coming days.

Surprise, surprise: Google just announced over at the Google TV Blog that their new partner Vizio will be releasing a line of televisions and Blu-ray players powered by Google TV later this year. Google also took the opportunity to remind us that the Android Market is headed for Google TV in the not-too-distant future.
