Vizio’s Via Tablet for my kitchen?

Vizio is showing off an iPad rival: Via Tablet at CES 2011:
The reps at Vizio's booth in Las Vegas were initially a bit camera-shy, but I finally persuaded them to take their new mobile wares out of their glass cases for some close-ups.
Let's begin with the Via Tablet, which boasts an impressive 8-inch display, a 1GHz single-core processor, a microSD memory expansion slot, a front-facing camera for video chat, and an IR emitter for taking command of your HDTV.
More interesting was word of a couple of the Via Tablet's slated accessories: an ATSC tuner dongle for over-the-air DTV channels — nice — and a dock for wirelessly streaming uncompressed HDTV video to your TV.

Very nice! if their pricing is aggressive enough, I'll get one for the kitchen, which can be web browser, music player, netflix player, TV (with the tuner), and a bulletin board for the kids, say, reminding them to finish their homeworks before they can play.
