Did you know?,
This review is from: Coby Kyros 7-Inch†Android 2.3 4 GB Internet Touchscreen Tablet - MID7012-4G (Black) (Personal Computers)
I bought 3 of these for my three grandaughters. You can install the amazon app store on it and get android apps that install easy and play very well. Amazon gives a paid app for free I believe daily. I was able to install apps like Angry birds on them for free and they work very well. I too, was impressed with this tablet, for the money it is a very good buy. I know it's not an IPad and I would not compare it to it either but, out of most budget tablets, this is one of the best. I played with each one for a while and watched videos online. I did not have any problems. The screen is resistive but yet i was able to scroll and type without the stylus unlike some others tablets that i tried out first.I did a lot of searches on the internet and compared many tablets in the same category.I also bought several and had to return them. For me, this was the winner.

Just wondering if it is 4G like it says... Can you ride around in the car and use it without being in a WiFi area?

It's not 4G ...it 4GB. It works as wifi.

No it does not have a camera. I think there is another model according to CobyUSA website that has a camera that costs a little more.

Yes it was. But the two things I installed (Bubble Birds and Jelly something or other) aren't working. The ones I downloaded from Get Jar do work. Any ideas, anyone?

I do not have wifi connection at home and I don't feel safe to use it. Is there anyway I can download the games and books onto my computer and then transfer them to the tablet? If so, how? Please help.

I was able to download and install it from the Amazon app store, and it runs. But.. the picture is jerky and out of sync with the sound. However, this is a complaint made by many others when reviewing this app, including Kindle Fire owners. So I'm hoping that it is an app problem which will eventually be rectified. I can tell you, though, that MP4s run great, as do avis.
