Forget all the nice things I had written and said about this tablet. While they all still might be true, it's all useless when the charging pin breaks off in the tablet with less than 1 month of use time. The moment I saw it, I knew that it could be trouble, but I convinced myself that I wouldn't have a problem with it because I'd be gentle each time I put the charging adapter in, or took it out. I'm left with a 60 dollar paperweight now, because since it won't charge up - I can't do a factory reset, and if I can't do a factory reset...well, I'm not going to send it back to get a refund.
I tried with this device. I really did. I knew it was the best, or the greatest, or the most sleek. I found workarounds and compromises just to get AmazonApps to not crash. I even bought an on the go cable to see if I could hook up different peripherals.
Well, I guess you live and you learn...I'm keeping the video up as well as the observations I had previously made because I don't want to discourage you all from giving it your best shot with this device. I truly don't think I was being heavy handed with the tablet - maybe just bad luck, maybe bad manufacturing, maybe a bit of both. The good news is that the tablet takes up no more space than a PS3 or Xbox360 game, and like I said earlier - there are some games I've previously purchased for 60 bucks that I got even less use out of. So there we have it. Goodbye, Coby 7034-4. Hello, Nexus 7. Maybe.
This is my first video review for Amazon - I thought it'd be a lot easier to show some of the functionality of this device rather than write it all out. This is meant as a 35,000 foot view of what the device can (and can't) do.Read more ›
I own an iPad2 which really is just a marvelous device. My biggest gripe is that Apple devices are tied to iTunes and the capacitive screen is designed for finger touch. Most iPad styluses have a fat nib which replicates your fingertip. I consider a stylus for drawing on a tablet to be a necessity (though I've certainly seen people create beautiful artwork on an iPad using only their finger as an input device). Drawing with a fat nib stylus is like drawing with a crayon or pastel stick. It's great for something more painterly but not great for tighter drawings created with a pencil or pen.
When I found the Coby Kyros tablet, I was intrigued that the tablet could be ordered with either a capacitive or resistive screen. Generally, resistive screens are frowned upon but they allow the use of a narrow pointed stylus which can more closely mimic the feel of a pencil or pen. Given the low price, I felt like this tablet wasn't going to kill me financially if it didn't meet my expectations.
The first thing I noticed is that the tablet is all plastic and feels cheap compared to an iPad or other Android tablets that cost more. However, the build quality hasn't given me any trouble other than it feels like a toy (and at this price point, you could certainly make the argument that it is a toy).
I was able to get the Amazon app store installed and download some drawing apps but after a recent app update, the Amazon app store doesn't work properly anymore.Read more ›
