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.

8.0": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.5 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Velocity Micro: Velocity Micro was founded 1997 in USA and focusses on gaming computers for the American market.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
