Pros Lightweight, visual
Cons The on/off button. Smudges on the screen. Needs firmware to upgrade. Wi-fi works "most" of the time. No camera. A poor man's Ipad.
Summary I agree for the money, this is OK. I wasn't expecting a full-strength tablet. You will need a Micro card to download lthe firmware. The Ram is 256 (a bummer!) and it isn't like a netbook where you can swap Ram chips and upgrade.
I'm still testing it.

Pros Solidly built, Music app is good, Kindle app inclided
Cons A little slow to operate, touch screen can be hard to use, no access to Android Market
Summary This is a good blend between an ereader and a true tablet. There's no cameras or access to the Android Market, but the Kindle app works well and it's a cheap unit to throw in your bag on trips to check email or do some basic surfing. The screen is above average, but it is not the fastest tablet. I've found lots of app on the Amazon Android site. Flash video is still a problem. I got one for me and my wife for $150 each at Radio Shack. My wife uses her's mostly for reading. I use my for email, Facebook, and basic surfing. A case and stand are included in the box.
Pros Pros include that it has great color, a non-skid back, the battery charging indicator which starts out red when charging begins then turns green to show it is done; fast charging. Was able to download Kindle for Android which is WAY easier to use than the
Cons Cons: There is no indicator to show if you have really turned it off or if it is just sleeping. No indicator showing it is on, no indicator showing wi-fi is connected or not. This was not user-friendly to get started. There were no directions included oth
Summary As a reader, the Velocity Micro Cruz reader works great. Less expensive than Kindle and if you want it for reading books, That is what it was built for and works great at that.
Don't expect to find a selection of games to download for this product and don't expect it to write emails using the awkward keypad.
A stylus helps with the keypad but doesn't come with the product.
The Kindle App for Android is a smoother experience than the Borders App that comes pre-installed.
