There is the Vizio VTAB1008 which includes a built in IR blaster and universal remote control app.

Yes, but the OP said he wanted to develop his own universal remote app. Don't know if he can "get to" the IR device on the VTAB. Also don't know if it's a transceiver. Vizio refers to it as an "IR Blaster" and, as-delivered by Vizio, it has to ability to "learn."

Has no-one thought of the Sony S1? That thing is supposed to have an infrared port to the best of my knowledge. It's touted as a big feature, too, and (again, to the best of my knowledge) is compatible with a very wide variety of devices.
Awaiting the Transformer Prime.
The Vizio Tablet comes with infrared port and also comes with the remote control application, so if you want to control your tv, etc.. it will do it!
I need a programmers api i can write to for the ir port. I want my own app that combines dvr functionality with touch screen web connected content. See peel.com for examples on why traditional ir remote apps just dont cut it in todays connected world

Does the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 not have IR? My wife's favorite thing to do is to control our DVR with her Tab 2. I assume that was done by IR.
Yes it does. I have that tablet. It uses a dedicated app which is decent but somewhat limiting. I would assume no other apps would work with it.
