Velocity Micro Unveils Cruz T510 Android 4.0 Tablet

Velocity Micro has expanded its lineup with the Cruz T519 Android tablet. This North American company, known for producing budget tablets in the past, is offering this tablet for a little more with its tag price of $249.

The Cruz T519 tablet comes with a 9.7-inch LCD Capacitive Touchscreen with an aspect ratio of 4:3 and a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. At its core is a single core ARM Cortex A8 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz. Its operating system, meanwhile, is Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and its graphics processor is Dual Mali-400 2D/3D Core.

The tablet is equipped with 8 GB of Flash storage. Users, however, can opt for a larger storage capacity by using a microSD card on its built-in card slot. Moreover, the device comes with a variety of ports, including a 3.55 mm headphones jack, micro SD, micro USB host, micro USB, and mini HDMI. Bluetooth, however, is not present on the tablet. The slate carries support for a variety of audio and video file types. Among these are MP3, WAV, OGG, AVI, MP4, H.263, and H.264. Velocity Micro, however, cautions that some files, especially WAV and AVI, may need to be converted before the tablet can play them. As with most other tablets today, this one comes with dual cameras, one at the front, and one at the rear.

Velocity Micro has thrown in some pre-installed apps for convenience, such as Angry Birds Space, Astro File Manager, Inkpad, Kindle for Android, QuickOffice Pro, SuperHD, YouTube, Twitter, and Amazon MP3. It does not carry Google’s certification, however, so instead of Google Play, it offers Amazon Appstore.

The company moreover offers in-house support from its office in the US, and provides a one-year warranty for its parts and labor.

The specifications of the Cruz T519 look decent. However, considering its price, one might want to take a look at similar tablets which offer similar specifications at a lower price, or tablets with the same price but better specifications. Given the number of choices in Android tablets today, this task should not be too difficult.

  1. I bought a Velocity Micro Cruz T408 when it came and have loved it, about a day or 2 ago I ordered a T510, cant wait to get it and play with it some.

    People complain too much if a tablet does not have the android market, who cares. The Amazon apps store has everything, and everyday they give you one app free, a different app everyday and you can always go back to previous free offers whenever you want. To top it off, if amazon doesnt have it, but the Android Market does, just go on google and the name of the app “app name apk download” and you have it. Velocity Micro is great in my opinion
