Maybe you don’t want to pay $500+ for an Android tablet. We hear ya. If that’s the case, Velocity Micro’s Cruz Tablet is finally shipping. For $299.99 you get a 7-inch Android 2.0 tablet with an 800 x 480 capacitive touch panel, 512MB of RAM, 12GB of storage, 802.11n WiFi, inbuilt speakers, a headphone jack, mini-USB port and a rechargeable Li-ion that will deliver around ten hours of use.
Just keep in mind that you’ll be stuck accessing the Cruz Market instead of the Android Market, and there’s no embedded 3G. But hey, the price is right and there’s no contract.
