Vizio has announced pricing and availability details of their Co-Star Google TV unit. The $99 box, introduced about a month ago, is now available for pre-order and will begin to ship August 14th.
It is one of the most affordable solutions yet save for the Logitech Revue (which actually debuted at $300 but quickly received steep price drops following a lack of consumer demand).
Vizio’s box features a smart remote that gives you a touchpad and standard buttons on one side, and a QWERTY pad on the other. 3D video, OnLive gaming, and more make it one of the more attractive offerings for Google TV in quite some time. If you want to make sure you’ll get one once it launches don’t be afraid to put your pre-order in here.
