Shh! It’s a quiet release! Velocity Micro have basically just told the world in a whisper voice that they’ve got a new budget tablet to add to their ever-growing line running Android 2.0 out on the market now. It’s already got mixed reviews on Amazon and looks to be something very very very basic. I mean totally basic. It’s got a 7-inch screen, 4:3 aspect ratio, 800×600 resolution, capacitive touch, Android 2.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a user replaceable Li-Ion battery that provides “up to 10+ hours of life” or “24+ standby.” It comes with 256MB of RAM, includes Amazon’s Kindle e-book reader (where previous Velocity Micro tablet Cruze T103 had the Borders e-book app,) and it’s got 4GB of internal storage.
You can expand your storage on this T301 with its USB and SD card slots, a 4GB SD car being included with the device. This little creature will cost you right around $250 if you buy it on Amazon, but beware – you almost always get what you pay for. Remember this tablet runs Android 2.0 and remember that it does not run Android Marketplace. But check it out anyway!
