Velocity Micro Reveals 7" Cruz Tablet With Android
Velocity Micro is a respected name in the industry, if not a smaller one. The company has just released a new tablet of their own, the 7" Cruz Tablet. It's an Android tablet, much like the Galaxy Tab, but there's sadly no official access to the Android Market. Due to that, VM is including access to the Cruz Market, which will allow users to download certain apps, but definitely not all that are located in the Google-certified Android Market.
As for specifications, it will run Android 2.0 and use a 7" 800x480 capacitive touch panel, 802.11n Wi-Fi, integrated speakers, a mini-USB port, 12GB of storage (via an SD card slot), 512MB of memory, a headphone port and a battery that is said to be good for around 10 hours of usage. It's on sale now for $299, which is definitely one of the cheaper 7" Android tablets on the market today. A lot cheaper than the Tab, that's for sure, but there's no 3G and no Android Market. Tough call!
