Vizio Via networking HDTVs delayed until 2010

Despite promising to release its Via HDTVs with Wi-Fi and network connections this fall, Vizio has officially said it will delay the launch until January of 2010, according to a Friday CNET report. Other promised features of the Via TVs include local LED backlighting dimming for deeper black level reproduction and interactive add-ons as well as a Bluetooth remote with a QWERTY keyboard to navigate and manage it all.

The first of the TVs is expected to be the 55-inch VF552XVT, which is basically the same TV without the networking capability. The announcement of an official release is likely to come at the CES show at the start of January. Pricing is yet to be announced.
