Velocity Micro Cruz T301

The Velocity Micro Cruz T301 Android tablet is not a great product. But with a street price as low as $160, its core Android features and sturdy hardware make it a workable solution if you're strapped for cash.

Although the Cruz is based around Android (version 2.2), the expected physical navigation buttons typically found below the screen are absent. Instead, taking a cue from Android 3.0, Velocity Micro placed a navigation bar within the software, running it across the top of the screen.
