Back in December, Coby announced it will be releasing five Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablets in 2012. By the time I was done walking around Coby’s floor space at CES 2012, I came away with information on nine tablets.
All of Coby’s Ice Cream Sandwich tablets have capacitive touchscreens with the exception of one model. They all come with either a 7-inch, 8-inch, 9-inch, 9.7-inch or 10.1-inch display. The pricing on these tablets will also vary depending on specs such as processors, internal storage, aspect ratio and camera. It’s a lot to consider when trying to decide which Coby tablet is best for you.
Thankfully, Coby’s Ice Cream Sandwich tablets won’t be that expensive. The most expensive tablet (the 10.1-inch model) will be sold for around $299. One of the 7-inch models will go for around $180. Release dates were not given to me, but these tablets are a part of Coby’s spring line-up.
Without going over the slightly different specs for all nine tablets, I’ll just cover the specs on the high end and low end Ice Cream Sandwich tablets.
– Android 4.0
– 7-inch 800×480 WVGA display
– 1GHz Cortex A8 (VI Micro) processor
– 512 MB RAM
– 4GB Internal storage (expandable to 32GB)
– USB 2.0 port
– 10.1 inch widescreen 1280×800 WXGA display
– 1GHz Cortex A8 Allwinner processor
– 1GB RAM
– 8GB Internal storage (expandable to 32GB)
– 1 megapixel front camera
– USB 2.0 port
– Mini HDMI port
None of these tablets seem to support the official Android Market. Coby is using GetJar to supply its tablets with apps. We’ll have a video showing one of the tablets in action soon.
