Velocity Micro Cruz T408 and T410
The Velocity Micro Cruz T408 ($199) and T410 ($299) Android tablets are victims of poor timing. Until the arrival of the Amazon Kindle Fire, the Velocity Micro Cruz T408 was arguably the best $199 tablet on the market. Now, in comparison with the Kindle Fire or even the discounted $199 Nook Color, the Cruz's limitations and poor screen quality aren't worth your time or money.

The good: The Velocity Micro Cruz T410 has capable tablet hardware at a great price.
The bad: 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 bottom line: 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.
