Velocity Micro ships Cruz T301 with Kindle app

Velocity Micro has quietly released a third tablet, the Cruz T301. Like the earlier Cruz Reader, it uses a seven-inch touchscreen and Android 2.0. The T301 switches to a 4:3 ratio, 800x600 screen versus the 16:9 ratio earlier model and cuts memory in half to 256MB of RAM but is said to be good for over ten hours of operation. Preloaded software now includes Amazon's Kindle e-book app instead of the Borders e-book app preloaded on the Reader.

The tablet can also access the Cruz apps market to fill its 4GB of internal memory or storage space on SD memory cards. The T301 Cruz is bundled with a 4GB SD card. It's already available at Amazon for $250. [via Laptoping]
