    Our Review of the Velocity Micro Cruz Tablet (T103)

    Great review! The only ammendment I would make is that downloaded .3g2 (.mp4) videos ran fine.

    Hello (with a cruz surprise)

    Another thing... I saw that apps were being added in the CruzMarket, daily, and of the various apps I found the week I owned it, I found that some had upgraded to better functionality.

    Hello (with a cruz surprise)

    You can move the icons around... it takes some practice to get them just where you want, but think of it like that little sliding panel number game. Pretty soon you figure out which ones move when you move one into a new place. Also, I thought I saw a Sears ad that had the Cruz Tablet at $249...

    Cruz news (tablet)

    (lost that last post, dang it.)... it's essence was iPad is much better at touch/gesture recognition. SlideMe.org and freewarelovers.com are sources of apps while the CruzMarket is being ramped up. No market's apps ran all the time, I'm guessing because the Cruz Tablet doesn't have camera...

    Cruz Tablet...A Good option for the price

    I took mine back... it just didn't have enough apps and functionality (currently) for the money. I thought I'd try the Huawei S7, as an alternative, but as good as it is, I just couldn't take that resistive screen. The gestures missed sometimes (the device confusing a swipe for a press), and...

    Cruz news (tablet)

    On the box for the Cruz Tablet, which I got from Best Buy, there are three other models listed on the box. Mine was the Cruz Tablet T103. Others are Cruz Tablet T101, Cruz Tablet T101, and apparently above mine, a Cruz Tablet Pro 201. Maybe that Pro 201, with more apps (as they become...

    Cruz news (tablet)

    This writing is as of November 14, 2010. As a newby, I've had this first for me Android Cruz Tablet (not reader) for just over a week. I've played with it, downloaded a few dozen apps, most of which didn't run. However from the various markets, I was able to find alternative products for...

    Android Tablet to read ebooks

    I have the Kindle. It's fine for black and white text, or line drawing images, but I'm really happy with my Cruz Table which has color, much better web browsing, and two way e-mail. (Kindle is receive only, and only attachments in the correct format.) On my Cruz Tablet, I get about 10...

    Hello (with a cruz surprise)

    I was unaware of NeoCore. Let me track down some sources and play with it. My bet is that both the Cruz is not recognized by some markets, and some apps won't install unless they find the specific hardware (maybe firmware) components they are looking for. I'm too new at this to know.

    Huawei S7 / Cruz e-Reader / Cruz Tablet comparison

    Would somebody translate into Newby-ese what ARM, MIPS, and Snapdragon mean and what the ramifications are of having them or not? Thanks!

    Cruz news (tablet)

    The CruzMarket app is adding apps, though not all install. SlideME seems to have the most apps, though not all install. It DOES have a "Compatibility" test to preliminarily see if the app will load to your device. Most work (although those that access non-existent components such as camera...

    Cruz Tablet microphone discovery.

    Ok.. furthering my discovery... I'm sure the reason the audio was low, was because the speakers were converting sound energy into tiny voltages -- acting as microphones. Recording live audio is not going to happen with the device as built.

    Newby tech question -- Android non-market apps

    Great! I've gotten some stuff from slideme and Freeware Lovers: The Best Things in Life are FREE. (And although I don't want to pay for cameras, bluetooth, voice -- I kind of regret not having them. It's ok. I was one of the earliest adopters of the TRS-80 computer and a few months later the...

    Cruz Tablet microphone discovery.

    I haven't seen anything in the ads nor specs about a built-in (nor plug-in) microphone for this device but SOMETHING is microphonic. I installed a Tricorder app (ok -- sorry, aging semi-Trekkie, here), and the spectrum analyzer indicated some low level audio input. In other words, I saw...
