Cruz Reader: First Impressions
The Cruz Reader is one of the first "US-based" company to release an Android 2.0 tablet. We will be doing a full review on the Cruz Tablet when it is released as the specs appear to make it a better tablet. I did manage to play around with the Reader at a Borders store. The overall quality and feel is good. The Cruz Market is very poor. There were probably 20 - 30 apps in that "store." The resistive screen does seem more responsive than the Enso ZenPad 4 that we tested. The accelerometer also appears to be responsive. I had trouble getting the eReader app to work so I couldn't test the eReader with Borders store app. The built-in browser was slow but couldn't tell if it was the WiFi connection. Of course, this is not a detailed review but just the initial impression that I have. We will post a detailed review on the Cruz Tablet once it is released.
