Coby has begun shipping several of its Android 4.0 tablets that were first introduced earlier this year at CES. The two models that will arrive this month include the seven-inch Kyros MID7042-4 and the 9.7-inch Kyros MID9742-B, both focused on the entry-level tablet market.
Coby has just revealed it will bring five Android 4.0-powered tablets to CES in January. They will include the seven-inch MID7042, eight-inch MID8042, nine-inch MID9042, 9.7-inch MID9742, and 10-inch MID1042. All will be powered by the same 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and up to 1GB of RAM.
Tablet makers that have focused most of their time producing cheap alternatives to the iPad are themselves being squeezed by the Amazon Kindle Fire, the retail field acknowledged early Tuesday. Maylong, at times notorious for directly copying Apple, has pushed down the price of its Android 2.2-based M-250 tablet to just $97, Digitimes said. Coby's Kyros tablet has also had to drop to $148.
Today's deals from DealNN include discounted HDTVs, monitors, and more. Buy.com has a wide range of HDTVs on sale this week, however the Coby 32-inch LCD HDTV with built-in HDMI digital connection, 15-pin interface, 8ms response time, and 1366 x 768 maximum display resolution, is currently being featured at DealNN. This particular HDTV has recently dropped 37% in price and can now be purchased for only $249.99; free shipping is included as well.
iPad owners are the most likely to recommend their tablets than any other, IHS discovered in a fresh study. Out of 10, Apple users gave their tablets a typical 8.8 rating, making them very likely to suggest an iPad. Unusually, ultra-cheap tablet maker Zenithink was second by the slimmest margin, while Samsung, Archos, and Motorola were near equal.
Coby has introduced an Android tablet, the Kyros MID7015, aimed at budget-conscious consumers. The device integrates a seven-inch display with 800x480 resolution, while 4GB of internal memory can be supplemented with a microSD card. Android 2.1 is powered by an 800MHz processor, which is also claimed to be capable of HDMI output in 1080p and 720p resolutions.
Coby Electronics is planning on introducing the first sub-$100 netbook by March of next year, according to a Tuesday report. The appropriately named Midget PC will initially include models with 7- and 9-inch screens and be capable of performing 90 percent of consumer applications and have pre-loaded drivers for all major brands of printers and other peripherals, says Bob Gee, Coby's marketing director.
