Coby Enters the Budget Tablet Market with the Kyros Internet Touchscreen Tablet

Coby is the next one at bat to show off their newest tablet. Yes, the popular budget electronics company has also entered the tablet market and yes, it is running Android – version 2.1 specifically.  The Coby tablet is being called The Kyros Internet Touchscreen Tablet and it sports a  7″ screen, resistive touchscreen controls, and will connect to your TV via HDMI for you to enjoy 1080P HD videos, photos, and music. It also sports 4G of internal memory but it is expandable to 32GB via its SD card slot, and also features an unimpressive 800MHz ARM1176 CPU.  The only bright spots for the Kyros might be two of its included apps –the Aldiko E-Book and AppsLib. The Aldiko E-Book app gives you access to a library of thousands of e-books. While the AppsLib App lets you download and browse the AppsLib marketplace. The Kyros was most recently for sale exclusively on HSN for a suggested retail price $299.99. However there is no other place this unit can be found at the moment but I’m sure it might find its way back to HSN or perhaps even a big box retailer soon. In the meantime you can check out some unboxing images over at Android Tablets.
