Well friends, if you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the 8″ Vizio tab (and don’t live near a Costco), your time has come. The company announced today that its slate has begun shipping to retailers nationwide including Sam’s, Walmart and Amazon. The Android tablet is now priced at $299, a $30 drop from our last retail sighting — and just in time to entice those of you heading back to school in search of a new piece of tech to play with during that history lecture. Or perhaps you just want to kick it like Blake Griffin… don’t worry, we won’t judge you. Besides, what else do you need for your dorm room other than an integrated universal remote to queue up all those Lord of the Rings marathons?
