Velocity Micro shows Android 2.1-powered PMPs

PMP maker Velocity Micro has introduced two new portable devices, with the 7-inch Cruz Tablet and Cruz Reader. Both run on Android 2.1 and have Flash 10.1 support, and color, capacitive touchscreens driven by an 800MHz CPU. Velocity Micro has promised a Cruz Market app store for downloading specific software and e-books for the devices.

No word has been given for internal capacity, but an SD card slot will expand the devices. The Cruz Tablet gets a 2-magapixel front facing webcam and a docking station that lets the device function as a digital picture frame. What other, if any, differences exist between the two hasn't been established.

The Cruz Tablet will cost $300, while the Cruz Reader will have a $200 price tag, but release dates remain unknown. Velocity Micro has had the M5 out before, though it ran on Windows XP or Linux.
