The Coby MID7042 is a tablet with a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. Like most Coby tablets, the specs aren’t very impressive, but the  MID7042 will be one of the company’s first devices to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Coby introduced the MID7042 at CES in January, promising a starting price of around $150. It’s still not available for purchase in the US, but this week the tablet passed through the FCC website on its way to store shelves.

The 7 inch tablet features a mini HDMI port, a microSD card slot, a front-facing VGA camera, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi. It measures 7.6″ x 4.8″ x 0.4″ and weighs about three quarters of a pound.

  1. My son got his yesterday…very cool.  Fast, and touch sensitivity rivals iPAD for a fraction of the cost…Double thumbs up so far.
