The Bottom Line The Velocity Micro Cruz T301 Android tablet is a decent, low-priced option for general Web and e-mail tasks, but its bulky size and mediocre screen quality make it a poor choice for e-books, multimedia, and games. Thanks to its stellar performance and affordable price, the Nexus 7 is the Android tablet to get. The Archos 5 is a great video player, but it disappoints as a premium Android Internet tablet and GPS unit. The Velocity Micro Cruz T410 exists in an awkward space between full-fledged Android tablets and the walled garden of the Kindle Fire. What freedom it affords is spoiled by a poor screen and uninspired design. The Nook HD+ is a low-price, quality entry point into the world of tablets, especially now that it has full Google Play support.
