Velocity Micro Cruz T408 and T410 offer Android tablets with compromise

Last we heard of Velocity Micro it was coughing up licensing fees to Microsoft for its Android range, so it makes sense that the company should have a few new products to make the most of that spend.

This is the first time we've gotten more concrete details and specs on what the first Amazon tablet has to offer. Unfortunately, it's sounding much less like an iPad-killer and more like a super-charged Kindle ready to take on the Nook Color.

Amazon, Samsung, HTC… who’ll be webOS’ new suitor?

HP's decision to amputate its webOS hardware line and attempt to tourniquet the cash gush has left the platform's future in the air. The TouchPad and Pre lines may be dead in the water, but HP has made it clear that the company is "not walking away from webOS" but instead, according to developer relations VP for the platform Richard Kerris, intends to "explore the best hardware partner for it." Who, though, might be in the market for a plucky platform yet to find a manufacturer who can match it with appealing hardware?
