The Power of Android 4.0

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system is the latest version of the Android platform for tablets and more.

Just received the Coby Kyros MID 9742. For the money this is one fine tablet. I had Xoom Motorola tablet which was unfortunately lost on my travels. Using the Xoom as the standard, for the money the Kyros is a close and impressive second. A lot of the complaints that I have read are from people who are not exploring the tablet. Indeed it does not have Google play but the Amazon app store and other secondary app stores are easily accessible. The problem about havng to go through a computer to move apps from internal storage to the sd card is very solvable. There is a free app on Amazon app store called "App2SD" I downloaded it; you can move apps seamlessly from the internal to external memory in the blink of an eye. I reccommend the Coby Kyros to anyone on a budget or more improtantly to those who want something that works well without the newest bells and whistles that will be antiquated in less than three months. The truth is as technology progresses 80% of most products--computers, tablets, tv's, and so forth will converge upon a very acceptable and fairly reliable mean. To go much beyond the mean will cost too much for too little benefit except to say "I spent money on the latest and greatest" and of course to pay too little will get you a piece of junk. The Kyros difenitely is at the top of that 80%.

Length: 6:33 Mins
ATTENTION: Apparently Coby is going through a bankruptcy so I have been told by user's here.
You may wish to consider a NEWER Android tablet like Nexus 7 or a Windows 8 model with the
newer Atom Z2760 Processors which allow up to 4 1080p videos to be played at the same time.



NOTICE: If you have problems putting in a microSD card and it says "Card Damaged or Card not Readable Reinsert Card" try
ejecting and inserting it again while tablet is on. If it reads it go to settings, click Storage, scroll down to EXT SD CARD
and click on MOUNT SD CARD. If you get the same message, do this. Leave the card inside the tablet. Hold power button down to
SHUT OFF tablet, then after shutdown press and hold power until Coby logo screen appears again, your microSD card should be Mounted.

Coby has done there homework. They have been around since 1990 and are not a fly by night corporation. This tablet is very responsive,
no lags whatsoever. Aside from not including the Android Marketplace (now known as Google Play) you can download Amazon App Store
application from using the browser which came on your tablet. It has all the hot apps you would need.

I didn't want to pay twice as much for Apple tablet so I purchased this tablet and I've had it about a week now and love it. I have my main desk PC for word documents and printing. after burning out my laptop and don't want to carry the weight around when I travel. I'm lucky enough to have wifi at work and home so I don"t need an additional internet source. The keyboard works better for my fat fingers than using my android cellphone. I've been pulling up apps and bookmarking my favorite websites all week to make it easier for me. The only disadvantage I'm having is when I'm on my home email site I can't touch and open the emails without the keyboard popping up and getting in the way. I'll have to find a solution for that. I do have limited knowledge on all the tablets out there in the market. I've only just oberve the galaxy, I pad and one other brand from co-workers. I've already attached the 32SD card which! was very simple for more memory. So far it is doing all the tasks that I want from it. When on the internet the speed is very good.

Also, for this price and the fact that these tablets, cellphones and computers become outdated so quickly it makes sense to not pay a lot of money for these types of adult toys,!

Ok, I am DULY impressed. Since I purchased the Coby Kyros MID7015 7-Inch last year, I was so frustrated with its performance. It took me so long just to get it running, just to fiddle with the power button, and so forth...

But then, the sky parted and light beamed down.. No, seriously, I found out about this new model. All I can say is: Coby must've locked their engineers in a dungeon with little food and water, and said, "We won't release you 'til you make a better tablet!"

Sure enough, THEY DID!

This tablet, I guess since the touch screen is a different technology, Capacitative rather than Resistive, it makes for ease of use as well as hypersensitivity - if you want to know what I mean, two fingertips or swiping will make your screen zoom in or fly into another browser or app - once you master it, it's so intuitive, it's not even funny.

I can download apps faster, and add more than one email account (couldn't do so or knew how, on the earlier model). Other than the loss of Appslib (boo-hoo:() and Getjar lacking a few choice apps, I must say, I'm enjoying this tablet. Also, a friend, who is visually-impaired, explained that she could navigate it and the resolution for her was large and clear. She did not have to tweak the settings!

All in all, for the price, it's entertaining, gets more of what I need done on it, and once you master the swiping, dragging and other tactile taps, it's a gem. Can't wait to see what Coby comes out with next.
