The tablet market is surely a highly competitive one, and it has taken over the role of netbooks – or so it seems, thanks to Apple’s hugely successful iPad release with the slew of Android offerings. Today, we shall look at the Coby Kyros MID7024 tablet device that will run on a 1GHz Samsung S5PV210 ARM Cortex A8 processor which is aided by 512MB RAM and Android 2.2 Froyo as the operating system of choice. On paper, the hardware seems to be on par with the Google Nexus One and Nook Color, which are all different devices with one being a smartphone while the other is an ebook reader, as the Kyros sports a resistive touchscreen display. Of course, what would make you sit up would be the $166.47 price point that makes it the cheapest Cortex A8 processor tablet in the market at time of publishing.
