Summary: Initially liked this small tablet. Worked fine for about 6 months. After that several issues ensued. Battery would not charge properly,freeze ups ,and the charger would not work. As manufacturer explained to me that this model will be ,and was discontinued, they would not support repairs,beyond initial warranty. I could not recommend anyone buying this tablet.or any future tablet by Velocity . Shoddy workmanship should never be rewarded.
Summary: Purchased mine from HSN because it came preloaded with some expensive apps. I've now owned it for 6 months and it still functions fine. But after 4 months the upper left corner split open and expanded apart at the seam in the plastic. It was never dropped or mishandled, it did this on its own. Cruz customer service is a joke. They will not give you any technical support. I needed to move my apps to the sd card in order to mail them the defective unit.
Summary: I've had this tablet for just over a month now, and these are my two cents. The Pros: For an entry level, under $200 tablet, it isn't terrible. It arrived with just a few bloatware apps, mostly android OS stuff and a few games. It has plenty of onboard memory for apps (almost 400 megs), and can use up to a 32gb SD card. For some strange reason, unlike every other Android device I've used, apps don't just open themselves and run in the background.
Summary: I bought this for my 6 year old daughter. She's very smart. I'm a tech so, I'm all about electronics. My daughter loved the tablet Santa brought her. Its great for her to watch her movies, go online to her educational websites. I preconfigured it for her to make it easier on her. Then i tested it out. I hate the menu on the very top of the display. It would be much better on the bottom. The touch response is great.
Summary: I received the T408. The tablet is nice. Nice screen. Fairly easy to use. The power supply is garbage. Instead of a welded/glued strain relief on the micro USB end, it had a 2 piece shell. It started to come apart within 2 days. After 4 days, it was off completely and one of the connections broke. The tablet doesn't work with the universal chargers. I called the company and they opened a ticket. They asked me to send in a photo which I did.
Summary: In truth, I'm not sure why this device exists. It is obviously a direct competitor for the Kindle Fire without some of the Kindle Fire's features. The OS is a version of Android 2.3. It doesn't seem to be complete. The email and calendar apps are different (worse) then the one on my Android phone and you cannot get to the Android Market Place. The default browser is still the default Android browser which I think stinks.
Summary: I've been searching for a tablet that wasn't to big and offered a good value. This tablet is pretty good, not as smooth as my Toshiba or Kindle Fire but my kid will be happy with it. The first thing you notice, if your coming from higher end items, is the resolution seems a little washed out, not alot but a little. No official android market, but there's the amazon app market which is ok for now, until I find a way of installing the Official one.
