Coby has always been known for their low cost tablet PCs and it seems there is another one coming our way, if a recent FCC appearance of a Kyros 7 inch Android tablet is anything to go by.
Tablets from Coby, the company that was known for their cassette players, have never been stunning pieces of technology. However, Coby always made sure it matched the decent specs on board their tablet PCs with equally decent price to ensure they remain competitive. The latest Kyros MID7012 is no exception, a fact brought forth by its specifications.
The newest member of the Kyros family is based on a 800 Mhz ARM1176 CPU. It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a display of 7 inch dimension, though the resolution is not known as of now. The tablet comes with an USB 2.0 port, while on-board storage amounts to 4 GB. Sure, that is paltry, but Koby has made that up an SD card slot that supports a maximum of 32 GB. System memory stands at 256 MB while the tablet connects to the internet via Wi-Fi. Also, if the specifications don’t make your heads turn, maybe the price will. The tablet costs just $100.
Coby hasn’t stated when the tablet will make it to the market.
