Vizio to challenge Apple with tablet sold at Costco, Walmart, Sams Club

Vizio Inc., the nation's second-largest television supplier, will introduce a low-cost smartphone with a 4-inch screen and tablet computer with an 8- inch display using Google's Android software to attract consumers who don’t want to pay top-dollar for Apple's devices. The tablet and smartphone will be sold at Wal-Mart Stores and Costco.  A carrier for the devices will be announced closer to their summer debut. The new Vizio products will be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which begins Thursday, Chief Technology Officer Matthew McRae said in an interview last week.
