One are that Coby seems to had really focused on is size options. The new line offers 9 various screen sizes with various resolutions from 7-inch at 800 x 480 to 10-inch at 1280 x 800.
- Coby MID7042 – 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display
- Coby MID8042 – 8 inch, 800 x 600 pixel display
- Coby MID9042 – 9 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display
- Coby MID9742 – 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display
- Coby MID1042 – 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display
- Coby MID10245 – 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display
All of them offer the same 1GHz single-core Cortex 8 CPU and 1 GB of RAM. The each support a Micro SD slot, HDMI port, USB port, and a front facing camera. The 7 inch and the 8 inch variety offer you 4GB internal storage while the 9 inch through the 10 inch all feature 8GB of internal memory.
The only downside is the lack of Google Apps. The tablets all come pre-loaded with GetJar as the app market of choice, at least for now. That doesn’t make the tablets any less functional though. We did have a few minutes to talk with a gentleman at CES about the tablets and did a short, and less than amazing video, of the larger 10-inch 1280 x 800 model variant.
While I can’t find them for sale just yet anywhere on the web, the site does list them as available for sale. With the current state of the country’s economy being as terrible as it is, a Coby tablet might be enough to get you by for a while. What do you guys think? Are they worth taking a closer look at?
