Whatever eLocity can do... Velocity Micro can do better? Maybe! The aforesaid company has just revealed a trio of new tablets: the 7-inch Cruz Tablet L37, the 8-inch Cruz Tablet P38 and the 10.1-inch Cruz Tablet L510. From smallest to largest, the L37 is equipped with a 1024 x 600 capacitive touchpanel, 802.11n WiFi, 4GB of internal memory, front / rear-facing cameras, optional 3G, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and a micro-HDMI out port. The P38 is effectively the same, but it relies on a 1024 x 768 resolution display. The L510, as the resident Big Boy in the bunch, gets equipped with a 1366 x 768 resolution display, NVIDIA's Tegra 250 chipset and a 1GHz dual-core CPU. The whole lot is expected to ship with Amazon's Kindle app pre-installed, and Android 2.2 or 2.3 will be running the show. There's no mention of exactly when these guys will be out and about, nor how much each will cost, but you can catch the full release just past the break.
