Velocity Micro introduces T408 and T410 tablets

These budget tablets will each sport a single-core CPU with a 4GB SSD, starting at $239

United States-based manufacturer Velocity Micro has announced two new budget Android Gingerbread tablets as part of its Cruz lineup of eReaders.

First up is the Cruz T408, an 8-inch tablet with a single-core 1GHz Cortex-A8 CPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB SSD, Wi-Fi, microSD reader, front facing camera, and an 800x600 resolution capacitive touchscreen. The tablet will include Flash 10.3 support and come preinstalled with a number of useful apps including Android Kindle, Amazon Appstore, QuickOffice and even Angry Birds Rio. MPEG-4, FLV and H.264/H.263 video files should play with no problems on the tablet.

Meanwhile, the Cruz T410 is the 10-inch variant of the T408, but with a widescreen 1024x600 resolution display. Otherwise, the specs and installed applications are similar to its smaller sibling.

Late last year, Velocity Micro released two 7-inch Android tablets that could be considered predecessors to the newer lineup.

The T408 and T410 tablets will retail for $239 (170 Euro) and $299 (212 Euro), respectively. Both will be available before the end of this month. Check out the official product page here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
