Velocity Micro CruzThis year’s CES has already been busy for tablets, and the flurry continued today as Velocity Micro and Netbook Navigator each unveiled three new additions to their Cruz and Nav lines, respectively.

Of Velocity Micro’s new tablets, L510 is the biggest and baddest of the bunch, featuring a 10.1-inch touch screen with 1366 x 768 resolution. Velocity Micro is also offering the more mid-sized 8-inch P38, with a 1024 x 768 resolution, and the petite 7-inch L37 (1024 x 600 resolution). All three come equipped with Android OS 2.2, Bluetooth, HDMI (micro HDMI on the 7-incher), GPS, and a pre-installed Amazon Kindle app.  Velocity Micro has yet to announce price or release date information.

Netbook Navigator Nav7Netbook Navigator also added to the excitement — and mass of tablet announcements — with the addition of three new Windows slate PCs to their lineup. The Nav7, Nav9, and Nav10i (7-, 8.9-, and 10.1-inches, respectively) will all feature Intel ATOM processors, 2 GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and optional 3G.

They will also display a brand new user interface, which will, according to Netbook Navigator, make Windows “a lot more touch-friendly.” Pricing about the Nav7 and Nav10i are still a bit sketchy without much official word from the company, however NAV9s are available for pre-order, ranging from $774 for the minimalist Nav9 (no 3G, and only a 16GB SSD) to $1,124 for the best equipped version (3G, 64 GB SSD).
