    I bought my girlfriend the velocity micro cruz tablet T103 at borders, and I've been playing with it. I had the install of an older version of ADW Launcher (1.1.5) and once I installed that, navigating the home screens got SO much smoother.

    It comes with android 2.0 preinstalled. I'm hoping it'll get froyo at some point for her sake but I doubt it.

    Does anyone know of development anywhere? I've looked at xda and there's no subforums there....

    Universalandroot will not work (for your info)

    I had download file .apks on my sd card that I moved to the sdcard for the tablet, and was able to install apps that way.

    The only one that won't work is angry birds, which is frustrating my gf, because she wants that game on her tablet lol

    For those who are interested, I got youtube working by installing skyfire browser from an apk I had on my sd card.

    Skyfire does work quite well on the velocity micro cruz tablet.

    Could you list what apps worked for those of us considering the Cruz Tablet?

    Bear in mind that this is the TABLET and not the READER

    I installed
    ADW Launcher v 1.1.5 (haven't tried any newer versions yet)
    Jewels (its a jeweled game, and jewels is the name of it)
    Skyfire (worked for watching youtube videos)
    Mahjong 3d by Magma Mobile works but its very choppy

    My gf got mad that I was "playing with it more than her", so I haven't done much else with it yet.

    I went ahead and got the Tablet. I have T105 model with 4 & 8 gb sd cards. I have Droid X for phone so I knew this would not be on that level. There is lag, it is not speedy and browsing is lower gear. So far no Market hacks have worked, but side loading has been fine (many 2.2 apps will not work). Wifi has been strong inside of house and battery does look to run with 10-12 hours of usage.

    Here is what I have been able to install/run: Advanced Task Manager, Aldiko, Android System Info, AndroZip, AndApp Store, AppBrain (but no Market), Astro, AudioManager, Battery Booster, Battery Info, Beautiful Widgets, Documents to Go, Fancy Widget, Gallery 2.1, GDocs, iReader, Kindle, Google Maps (but no gps), Pandora, SlideMe, Skyfire, Sportstap, and SugarSync.

    I am unable to get Pandora installed! Could you tell me how you got it installed? I tried manually downloading the APK, and nothing. Did you SideLoad it?

    Has anyone else had any luck installing the Pandora app on the Cruz Tablet? I downloaded the apk file and transferred it to my SD card and tried installing it but it keeps saying Not Installed.

    Can anyone who has had luck with installing this app please message me or email me at thinksynchs@hotmail.com

    Thanks so much.

    T105 shield vs. T103 sheild



    Chatted online with someone at Zagg, they said the T105 sheild should fit the T103. If it doesn't fit they said u could send it back. :) Hope this helps.
