Velocity Micro, who has tried to enter the market before with their M5 MID, yesterday unveiled two new tablet devices—the Cruz Tablet and Cruz Reader. Both models use a 7-inch touchscreen and support Flash 10.1, but the most attractive aspect is the affordability: the Cruz Tablet is expected to cost $299.99 while the Cruz Reader will be $199.99.
The tablets have an 800MHz processor, SD card slot, USB connectivity, and the standard Android apps. There will also be a “Cruz Market” app store for downloading software and ebooks. The Cruz Tablet comes with a 2-magapixel front facing webcam as well as a docking station that lets you convert it into a digital picture frame. Visit www.cruztablet.com for more information.
