Vizio 22″ RAZOR LED M220NV With Internet Apps Coming Soon

Vizio’s 22-inch, internet App LCD HDTV is getting ready for release.  The M220NV looks to integrate many of today’s popular social networking applications such as Facebook and Twitter into the browsing experience via the internet.  This technology is nothing new, however there is definitely a recent increase in the number of companies producing televisions tied into social networks and applications.

The M220NV will come with built-in 802.11n wireless networking as well as the standard ethernet port.  Unlike my recent review of the M190va, this HDTV will actually be able to output in 1080p which is surely good news to most.  A list of the internet apps include:

  • NBA Gametime
  • Amazon Video On Demand
  • eBay Popular Items
  • Flickr (I personally think is uesless)
  • Netflix
  • Pandora
  • Rhapsody
  • Twitter
  • Vudu
  • Yahoo

You may notice that Facebook is missing from the list; Vizio plans to add Facebook integration very soon (among others).  I am sure Vizio and other manufacturers view this integration as an opportunity to share what you are watching, at any given time, in hopes that people will tune into the show.  I see advertiser dollars — lots and lots of dollars.

    Dell was smart on picking up Vizio, could be the next Samsung?

    Definitely, I did quite a bit of research about the company and founder (William Wang). I know his name is funny lol, but seriously the guy knows what he's doing. I definitely think Vizio is on the right track.

    Nice read, a lot of interesting points were made. Nowadays, it’s no surprise that more and more companies like Vizio will try innovating things in order to go with the trend. Having internet apps on a HDTV is such a timely and great idea. The next big thing for this is, more and more advertisers could possibly be opted to post more ads in these applications.

      Yeah I love the technology integration that is beginning to push in all of the business industries (hardware, software, automotive). Vizio is really stepping up to the plate and putting pressure on some of the other companies to lower prices while providing quality products. The exception, of course being Samsung, but they produce platinum.

      I was very interested in Panasonic's recent announcement to integrate Skype into their TVs. I posted on it earlier today. Very interesting stuff coming out in the next few years.

    can I customize the internet address for this tv model?

    • arctyc

      I am not entirely sure, I haven't checked. I would assume there is a minimal amount of customization, if any at all.

    are you able to attach wireless keyboard and mouse

    • K.L. Smith

      It was unclear, but I believe you can attach some peripherals to the TV. Vizio was pushing the slideout Keyboard/Keypad on the controller moreso than third-party peripherals like keyboards.
