    My wife just bought the vizio vtab 1008 and was told by sales person that not only could she use the market for apps but mention something about vizio having apps. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this?

    Probably mostly paid and not as sweet. At least that's what I've found with Toshiba's app market. Also only about twenty applications. On a side note: I wish my thrive came with a built in ir blaster! (Particularly because we keep losing our tv remote)

    Yes the ir blaster seems to be one of the main apps installed, and one of the few things that make the Vizio different from say a nook color

    from: Vizio 8 Inch Android Tablet Specifications and Features

    Built-in IR Blaster: Yes – For Universal remote functionality. Preloaded universal remote app covers 95% of CE devices in US market

    the built in on screen keyboard is a modified version of swiftkey which normally sells for 4.99? (from ubergizmo review)

    there is a built in gps as well

    and it comes with the google stuff so maps, gmail, gtalk are already there

    comes with: Nook, Navigator, Latitude, voice search...

    Oh,man, the ir blaster is fun. Had I guy watching a sporting match on TV in our cafeteria, when it mysteriously went off, he turned it back on the volume went down he turned it back up it stayed there then went to full. he got it back down and then the TV went off and on several times, he got mad threw the remote and swore. Later asked what was wrong he said the f*&$%@g TV was broken, I didn't say a thing. Might happen again though.

    Nook, you have to install yourself.

    on that annoying section under favorites that you cant minimize or do anything with nook was the default reader out of the box on mine, i added kindle, kobo, moon+ aldiko, documentstogo, mobilepdfviewer and coolreader later

    Actually you can edit the categories and what's in them. This screenshot gallery shows how. I've linked to the first relevant image, #12, and they go through #22.
