Velocity Micro recently released the follow-up for their popular Cruz mobile tablet, the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301, which will give users a bigger bang for their buck and host several new features that weren’t found on the original Cruz tablet.
Let’s face it; most consumers that are checking out the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 are doing so because of its surprisingly low price. Most modern day tablets are high-priced and range between $500-$900 dollars, and in order to nab an affordable tablet, most consumers will have to settle for a knockoff, specialty, or generic tablet. Fortunately, the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 is aggressively priced at only $199, and at $199, the Cruz Tablet T301 costs less than half as much as the entry level iPad 2.
At the budget price of $199, it’s surprising that the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 turns on at all, but even more surprising is the great hardware under this tablets hood. The Cruz Tablet T301 features 256MB of RAM, 4GB of integrated flash memory, wireless 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, and a lithium ion battery. The Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 is surprisingly fast for a tablet at its price range and is likely the best budget tablet on the market.
If the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 isn’t “beefed” up enough for you, Velocity Micro provided several opportunities for upgrading the T301 tablet. In order to get the most out of the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301, users are able to upgrade its internal memory up to 32GB via a microSD card, an upgradeable lithium ion battery, and this tablet even supports USB for added support.
Android 2.2 isn’t usually a feature to rave about ‘” especially considering that Android 2.3 Gingerbread is out ‘” but most other tablets under $300 feature some sort of generic operating system with limited features. Android 2.2 is a serious perk of the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 and allows its user base to have full access to the Android Market and take full advantage of the setting and user interface provided by Android 2.2.
Vibrant 7″ Touchscreen Display
Depending on your expectations, the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet T301 is an excellent budget tablet and sports a vibrant 7 inch touchscreen display. The Tablet T301’s 7 inch touchscreen is very responsive and is perfect for watching movies, reading eBooks, playing Android apps and games, and browsing the web.
