Coby has built a reputation on the back of its budget priced tablet devices. Now the company is into a quiet makeover of sorts in 2013 with its tablet line up. Thankfully, that is limited to the tablet’s capabilities and has left the pricing strategy unchanged. A significant development with the new crop of Coby tablets is that they come integrated with Google Play. This will significantly enhance the appeal of the tablet as there are a lot more things to do now with the tablets than ever before. This is in addition to the usual Google app suite of Gmail, Google Maps, and YouTube.
To be due in March, Coby’s new tablet range includes the 7 inch Coby MID7035 and the Coby MID8065 with a 10.1 inch display. The common aspect with both the tablet devices include dual core 1.2 GHz Amlogic AM8726 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, along with Android 4.0 ICS as the operating system.
The 7 inch tablet is priced a convenient $139, while the bigger 8 and 10 inch version has been priced $180 and $230 respectively. While the 7 incher is already available, the 8 and 10 inch version will be available from this March onwards.
