Velocity Micro Intros 7-Inch and 9.7-Inch Cruz Tablets

Has access to Kindle for Android and the Amazon Appstore

It turns out that Velocity Micro is definitely not going to settle for just a projector at this year's CES, even if it is an unusually small one.

The company has put together two tablets, both bearing the Cruz moniker and based on a Cortex A8 processor.

Speaking of the ARM chip, it is backed up by 512 MB of DDR3 RAM (random access memory) and handles the data stored on the 8 GB of Flash storage space.

The Cruz Tablet T507 is the smaller of the pair, with a 7-inch LCD (liquid crystal display) whose native resolution was left unmentioned.

The larger tablet, Cruz Tablet T510, has a 9.7-inch panel and a 4:3 aspect ratio (the other one has the widescreen display shape). Resolution is just as unknown.

Capacitive touch recognition is included on both Cruz devices.

The tablets utilize discrete ARM Mali 400MHz 3D Graphics Acceleration and boast front-facing cameras.

Also, they possess one HDMI output each, so that video may be played on HDTVs or monitors when the situation calls for it.

Other specifications include support for Flash Player 11 and the Android 4.0 operating system (Ice Cream Sandwich).

Finally, just so owners have a wide variety of ways to enjoy their spare time, Velocity Micro tossed in the Kindle app for Android and the QuickOffice Full.

For those unaware, the Kindle app gives the tablets the same capabilities as the Kindle e-readers from Amazon (the software offers access to the bookstore, displays the books already owned, etc.).

The Cruz T507 and T510 tablets do not yet have their own product pages, unlike the pocketable Shine Projector that got introduced alongside them.

It shouldn't take long for them to go online, though. Even if they do arrive late, fashionably or otherwise, the devices will be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2012), an event that will take place between January 10 and 13.
