Velocity Cruz D610 and Q610 announced – 10-inch Android tablets starting at $199
CES is not only for those big, popular companies, you know. Some lesser known brands are attending as well, including Velocity, which just announced a pair of new Android tablets. The Velocity Cruz D610 and Cruz Q610, as they are called, both come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box and offer 10.1 inches of screen real estate. What sets the two apart, however, is that while the Cruz D610 is powered by a dual-core processor, its beefier sibling – the Velocity Cruz Q610, packs a quad-core CPU. (D610, Q610 – see what they did there?)
Unfortunately, further details about what makes the Velocity Cruz D610 and Q610 tick remain unclear, but the good news is that the two devices are "both powerful and affordable" at the same time, or so does their maker claim. Speaking of which, a starting retail price of around $199 is being quoted, presumably for the dual-core model. Both the Velocity Cruz D610 and Cruz Q610 are expected to launch in Q1 of 2013.
