Top Customer Reviews
Once purchased and unpacked I was surprised and elated to see that the battery was >75% charged. This allowed me to assess my new toy right away. Out of the box I was able to flawlessly connect to three WiFi networks, home, work and a coffee shop. I was also able to easily download a free eBook from Borders. As many suggest, I then updated the firmware. Once updated, I began to download, install, and personalize my Cruz.
