    Budget-friendly Ice Cream Sandwich Tablets from Coby on sale starting at $179


    For those looking for an inexpensive Android tablet but want to hold out for one with Ice Cream Sandwich, then there is now an interesting option. The electronics company Coby has six new tablets, and two of them just went on sale. All of them are running Ice Cream Sandwich already factory pre-installed. Their prices range with features and sizes, from $179.99 up to $279.99. They all have nearly identical specs except for sizes, resolution and storage options. They each are using a 1Ghz single-core Cortex 8 CPU and 1GB of RAM, and their screens feature capacitive technology. They each have a MicroSD slot, HDMI and USB ports, and front-facing cameras. The 7-inch and 8-inch models have 4GB storage, while the 10-inch variants have 8GB. Here is a list of the different models:

    • Coby MID7042 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display
    • Coby MID8042 8 inch, 800 x 600 pixel display
    • Coby MID9042 9 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display
    • Coby MID9742 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel display
    • Coby MID1042 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display
    • Coby MID10245 10 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display

    There is one caveat with these devices. As of yet, they only use GetJar for apps. For some reason they do not have official access to the Google Play Store/Android Market, although that may change in the future. Right now, only the MID7042 and MID1042 are available for sale on Coby's website. Supposedly, all of the tablets should start showing up at retail stores fairly soon.

    For more discussions on the new Coby Ice Cream Sandwich tablets, feel free to check out our dedicated section over at AndroidTablets.net. You can find it @ Coby Generation 3.

    What is the point in having a 9.7" and two 10" tablets with different screen resolutions?? This is really going to confuse customers.

    the 9.7" and 8" are 4:3 aspect ratio, i see this pleasing every body i'd rather have 4:3 on a tablet than 16:9

    Great, another competitor to the CVS Craig. CVS will have to step up it's game.

    Seriously, why would anyone by a piece of junk like this. Splurge for the extra $30 and get an Amazon Kindle Fire. Or wait for the Asus Nexus tablet, which will blow this piece of crap out of the water.

    I think we need to define what makes something a piece of crap? Is it the build quality? Is it the hardware components? Is it the CPU or speed of the CPU? If this Coby is a Dual core 1.5 Ghz demon, with 1 Gig of ram, maybe that should be good enough for $179.00. Just saying.

    I did the whole name brand thing when I was in Elementary school. I don't go there anymore. If I can get a Vizio TV that does everything I need, with good ratings and is half that of the Sony, then so be it. Sure the Sony may have more bling, and more solidly built, but I can live with that.

    Definitely not a dual core 1.5Ghz, single core 1Ghz, which is last year's technology. I'd gladly buy a vizio TV, would've years ago when they came out. Certain things u can tell the company did their homework on and will be a force to be reckoned with in That respective industry. Colby ain't it in my opinion.

    Edit: I mean Coby, not Colby. See, there should only be one Kobe, and he's on the Lakers already. This tab is a fail.
