73% Review: Velocity Cruz Tablet
Source: Justech'n English
This is by no means a high end tablet. With a paltry 600MHz processor and only 500MB of internal RAM it will not win any performance awards. However, it also does not come with a high end tablet price. The Velocity Cruz tablet retails for $250, but I managed to pick mine up for $80 off. At only $170 I think this tablet does a great job of playing movies and display text. I am very comfortable recommending it to anyone looking for a cheap, but usable tablet. Add to that the amazing battery life of 9.5 hours and I think I have a winner.

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.

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.

Velocity Micro Cruz T410 review
Source: Liliputing English
The Velocity Micro Cruz T410 is a 10 inch tablet that features nearly identical specifications to the T408. The main difference is the tablet’s larger, higer resolution display and higher price tag. The Cruz T410 costs $300 while its smaller sibling is just $200.
