Coby has never really shined in the Android tablet décor, but last month’s CES saw the company impressing for the first time with something else than a wide number of devices. Besides quantity, Coby finally had quality on its side, showing off gadgets with full Google-certification.

That meant users were able to access the Play Store without tinkering with the on-board software, but also that a number of Google specific apps (including GMaps, Gmail and YouTube) came pre-loaded.

Unfortunately, pricing and availability details were scarce, so no one really knew when to expect from the slates. As it happens, the 7-inch MID7035 is already up for grabs for $139, while the 8 and 10-inch MID8065 and MID1065 are due out in March.

The first of the unreleased duo will go for 180 bucks, which truly makes this a dirt-cheap tab. The thing will pack a 1,024 x 768 pix res display, a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, HDMI, microSD support and Android 4.0 ICS.

As for the MID1065, that’s set to feature most of the same goodies, save for the display of course. The 10-incher will boast a beautiful IPS panel with 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution, which will up the price with 50 bucks at a still decent $229.99.
