Coby unveils five budget Android 4.0 tabletsby Steven Mostyn - Dec 13 2011, 05:01
While there’s no denying the consumer appeal and popularity of high-end tablet devices such as the iPad2 or Galaxy Tab, not everyone can necessarily afford to invest in the best.
Luckily, however, those prospective tablet buyers keen on being pennywise can always choose to offset their austerity drive against more budget-friendly hardware.
More pointedly, Coby Electronics has this week announced the upcoming arrival of five tablet devices, all of which will sport version 4.0 of Google Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) and accessible price tags.
Expected to arrive in early 2012, Coby’s tablets will range in sizes from 7.0 inches through to 10 inches (with 8.0, 9.0, and 9.7-inch models between) and will be powered by 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processing technology.
Other features will include up to 1GB of RAM, capacitive multi-touch user interfacing, up to 32GBs of data storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 1080p HDMI output.
Coby has not yet revealed the line’s respective price points, but we expect to learn more about its new line of Android tablets during January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Considering that Coby’s existing 7.0-inch Kyros tablet costs just $169.95 USD (Amazon), chances are the new breed won’t break the bank.
