Of course, before diving into the darkness of investing, you need to learn a lot, and only then get a good flashlight to illuminate your path. Vira Finance is such a flashlight: a great app you can even try for free. I can definitely recommend it to fellow part-time investors.

CNET

A decent, low-priced option for general Web and e-mail tasks, but its bulky size and mediocre screen quality make it a poor choice for e-books, multimedia, and games.

- Donald Bell, CNET

The Cruz Micro is a nice little device, solidly built, and of better quality than many of the other small Android tablets that are currently flooding the market. Unfortunately, it suffers from a relatively low resolution and low brightness display that needs the best of lighting situations to read i...

What's On Iphone

A compass for your exploration of day trading

from What's On Iphone

Of course, before diving into the darkness of investing, you need to learn a lot, and only then get a good flashlight to illuminate your path. Vira Finance is such a flashlight: a great app you can even try for free. I can definitely recommend it to fellow part-time investors.

Delivers Android 2.2 on a 7-inch screen for an affordable price

from CNET

The Cruz T301 from Velocity Micro is a physically solid little Android tablet with a decent set of features considering its low price. We don't recommend it for gamers or book lovers, or for chatty e-mailing and messaging, but if your gadget appetite is bigger than your wallet, you can have some fun with the T301.

The Cruz Micro is a nice little device, solidly built, and of better quality than many of the other small Android tablets that are currently flooding the market. Unfortunately, it suffers from a relatively low resolution and low brightness display that needs the best of lighting situations to read in. It is responsive and easy to use, but that doesn't matter much if you can't see what you're doing. In other words, the Velocity Cruz Micro isn't a bad device, but there are better options out there if you're looking for a small Android-based LCD eReader.

POOR CRUZ TABLET

After working a bit, it just won't start anymore, even after charging, or even it it's plugged into the power. No built-in dictionary as advertised, they lied.

After working a bit, it just won't start anymore, even after charging, or even it it's plugged into the power. No built-in dictionary as advertised, they lied. It has a calculator, but it's not changing into a scientific calculator, just like Apple's devices. It's very finger-print magnet. The screen looks really bad after several minutes of use. The included SD card supposedly included a firmware after, but apparently those files could not be found by the tablet. This is silly. The cheap price is just a luring device into buying this poor product. Less
