T408 & T410 Drop Test

The features of the Velocity Micro Cruz T410 and Cruz T408 just never seem to end! In addition to their awesome Flash Player 10.3, the tablets are also equipped with a hard, plastic, rubberized backing that withstands your tumbles and fumbles!

This testing video demonstrates how well the Cruz T410 and Cruz T408 withstand a standard drop. No trick cut-away photography. No misleading gimmicks. While we don’t advise trying this yourself, we do want you to know how sturdy our tablets really are.

Cruz T410 Flash Speed Test

One advantage the Velocity Micro Cruz T410 and Cruz T408 have over the competition is an officially licensed, hardware tuned version of Flash Player 10.3. We didn’t use an off the shelf, stock version of the player in our devices. This means that Flash applications and web pages load much faster on our devices than many others on the market.

This is a side by side speed test demonstrating how quickly Flash pages load on the Cruz T410. No tricks or gimmicks. We simply connected all three devices to the same wifi, loaded the page, and hit go. The results speak for themselves.

Obviously, your results may vary but this is what we saw during our testing. Stay tuned for more!
