Consumer electronics maker Coby has launched its first Android tablet. The Coby Kyros features a 7 inch resistive touchscreen display, Android 2.1, and an 800MHz ARM-based processor. It can handle 1080p HD video playback and has an HDMI port.
The tablet comes with 4GB of storage and a microSD card slot for expansion.
The Kyros doesn’t ship with the default Google apps installed. Instead if has the AppsLib third party app store.
At launch, the Coby Kyros will be available for $299.99 exclusively from the Home Shopping Network. I suspect if and when the tablet gains wider distribution we might see the price fall. There are actually a number of cheap Chinese tablets available with similar features for well under $300 at this point.
A few months ago Coby showed off an Android tablet that doesn’t look anything like the Kyros.
