Reviews for the Velocity Micro Cruz T408

Velocity Micro Cruz T408 Tablet review
Source: Liliputing English
But unless you really want a more standard Android user interface than the Kindle will provide, with a home screen and support for widgets, I can’t think of a lot of reasons why you would spend $200 on the Cruz T408 instead of the Kindle Fire which will have a faster processor and higher quality display. The Velocity Micro Cruz T408 is a good budget Android tablet. I’m just not sure it’s a good enough budget Android tablet.

50% Velocity Micro Cruz T408

If you're looking for a $199 tablet, it's worth waiting to see if the Amazon Kindle Fire, with its far superior screen, fits your bill. Otherwise, the HTC Flyer ($299.99 street, 3.5 stars) runs a fully Google-approved version of Android with some sexy HTC extensions, but even that is still using an OS designed for smaller phone screens. Our current pick for small tablets is the Acer Iconia Tab A100 ($329, 4 stars), which has a better screen, processor, and OS for a much more satisfying experience. It isn't as cheap, but you get a lot more for your money. The investment is worth it.

Cheap Android Tablet Tries to Out-Cool the Fire

It adds up to, well, nothing very impressive. But fortunately the Cruz has a major ace in its sleeve in the form of pricing that can undercut its competition by half. If price is your primary concern, it may be worth a look. But then again, if you’re that broke you probably shouldn’t be buying a tablet in the first place.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
