Cruz T408, T410 Gingerbread Android tablets coming soon (video)

It's only been hours since I posted about the T408 clearing the FCC and Velocity Micro upstaged my post with the launch of said tablet. (Well now that was poor timing on my part.) The T408 and the T410 I showed you last week will be shipping in a few weeks with retail prices of $240 and $300, respectively.

They're going to be 8" and 10" tablets with Wifi, a microSD card slot, a front facing camera, and they will run Android v2.3 Gingerbread on the same 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 CPU (confirmed in the photographs). The tablets will ship with the impressive app suite I already told you about.

The press release really doesn't have much detail that I didn't already cover in my previous posts. There's no mention of the screen or camera resolutions, for example. But the press release does mention that the tablets will ship with Adobe Flash Player 10.3, which i had pretty much assumed based on the specs.

All in all, these are great tablets but I think they cost too much. There's no sign of the T410 anywhere but the T408 is already up for pre-order on Amazon. The Cruz T408 and T410 will be available by the end of September from most major electronics retailers in the US.  For more information on these new devices or on the Cruz line, visit CruzTablet.com.
