Velocity Micro Cruz Reader and Tablet ready for pre-sale

Back when we first heard of Velocity Micro Cruz in mid July, their devices seemed to be worth keeping an eye on. Since then, a lot has changed. Just about everyone you can imagine is putting something out in the tablet form factor. What’s more, there’s good reason to believe that some of those tablets will be handled through wireless carriers; Something that would give them a serious advantage over more independently sold devices. So I suppose it’s a good thing that Velocity Micro Cruz is putting their Reader and Tablet up for pre-sale now, with promises of shipping out in early September.
