Coby is known for producing low cost Android tablets and they have been doing so for over a year now. Also, the company has kept a line of budget devices hitting the market by sticking to Android 2.2 Froyo while most other Tablet PC makers have been releasing tablets that come with dual core processors having high resolution displays and running on the Android 3.x Honeycomb OS. Coby too has shifted gears as the company is now going to launch some new models that would be running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Not a great improvement over Android Froyo but is a step forward nonetheless.
