Velocity Micro D610, Q610 tablets feature dual, quad-core processors

Velocity Micro’s newest tablets are 10 inch models with multi-core processors and Android 4.1 software. Prices should start at about $199 when the tablets go on sale during the first quarter of 2013.

The Velocity Micro Cruz D610 and Cruz Q610 are also some of the first tablets that will ship in the US with multi-core processors from Chinese chip-maker Allwinner.

Allwinner recently launched the new multi-core processors, including a dual-core chip which is pin-to-pin compatible with the popular single core Allwinner A10 chip. That makes it easy for device makers to update existing products to feature the newer, faster processor.

The Velocity Micro Cruz Q610 will feature a 1.5 GHz Allwinner A31 quad-core CPU, while the Cruz D610 has a dual core Allwinner A20 chip.

    Why are they even bothering? The Cruz brand name is poison, thanks to the crappy Cruz Reader and Cruz Tablet. Their 8″ T508 is being carried only by newegg, Tiger Direct, and Walmart (and not available at all of them, with a screwy price range too!), not Best Buy or J&R, which carried them previously.

      If Coby can still make ‘em and sell ‘em, then these guys can too.

    Pin for pin, eh?
    It strikes me that some hackers might take a stab at it too! :)
