Velocity Micro Cruz T408

 

Editors' note: On October 31, 2011, Velocity Micro provided a firmware update to the Cruz T408 and T410 tablets as an optional download from its Web site. The following review reflects this update.

The Velocity Micro Cruz T410 has capable tablet hardware at a great price.

The design is bulky, the dim screen has some bad viewing angles, and the T410 doesn't have Google Mobile apps or Android Market.

The Velocity Micro Cruz T410 exists in an awkward space between full-fledged Android tablets and the walled garden of the Kindle Fire. What freedom it affords is spoiled by a poor screen and uninspired design.

It's no secret that the market for Android tablets is crowded - and getting more so every day. Just ask Samsung, Acer, HTC, Huawei, Lenovo, Pandigital and, oh yes, Verticool. We could keep going, but you get the point: it's a big market out there, one...

Inexpensive ; Speedy for everyday tasks ; Solid build quality

Runs Gingerbread ; No Android Market access ; No rear-facing camera

Velocity Micro's 8-inch Cruz T408 tablet is inexpensive and solidly built, but for $199 you should expect some serious compromises -- namely, no Honeycomb or Android Market access.

The 8-inch Velocity Micro Cruz T408 Android tablet offers an attractive design for a budget-friendly price, but its performance and screen could be better.

The $239 Velocity Cruz T408 tablet's affordable price will be very attractive to students and frugal tablet shoppers of all ages. And unlike with the Kindle Fire, you can use this slate to make video calls. However, the slate's somewhat sluggish...

The screen is grainy and low-res, and the OS is a non-Google-approved version of Android 2.3. If you're the kind of person who rolls your own tablet OS, the Cruz has decent bones and would make a good project, but Velocity Micro doesn't offer the...

Well-built. Faster than its specs imply

Poor screen. No Google services. No HDMI out

The Velocity Micro Cruz T408 is a decent low-cost tablet ruined by a poor screen and inadequate OS.

Velocity Micro Cruz T408 tablet up for pre-order

 

Velocity Micro Cruz T408 is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread tablet that offers a bevy of good things. As the name would vaguely hint, the size of the display is a good 8 inches. It runs on a Samsung Cortex A-8 processor, packs 4GB of storage, 512 MB RAM, a...

"Once had some good features, now completely irrelevant."

 

Bad product - I'm disappointed I bought it. Would not buy anything from this producer again.

A lightweight tablet that has nice colors.

Bad touch sensitivity, no type-ahead, does not install / load google apps, mobile interface is light years behind my smart phone.

"Excellent unit, fast processor, light weight."

 

We love the sharp images and the beautiful colors. Everything was intuitive and the connection worked within minutes. The OS is easy to use and our knowledge from Windows transfered to this unit. The price is just right and the functionality is great.

The processor is fast and the unit is light weight. The OS is easy to use and there are lots of Apps available. Access to the internet was fast using our home network via the wi-fi connection. The wi-fi uses the highest level of security and I was able

I think that I will need to add more memory as we increase the use of the unit. It does not have a cell phone connection, but I know how to link it with my cell phone if I am away from home.

Had to check this out before sending to him, the screen is beautiful, everything I could check without registering it was impressive. I also like the texture on the back of the case so it's not so slippery. I did not see any problems with it.

Product came scratched and sound is terrible. Not worth any money. Instructions are a joke.
