Velocity Micro unveils Android 2.1 Cruz Tablet and Cruz Reader

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 for more information.
