[CES 2013] Three or four CES editions ago when the Android mobile operating system was still rather raw, there were already many small time hardware manufacturers who jumped aboard the Android-powered tablet bandwagon, and since Android has strengthened its position considerably, the slew of Android tablets at CES has not ceased to slow down. Case in point, the Coby MID7065, an Android-powered tablet that features Google Play as well as Google Mobile services. This bad boy will start to ship sometime in the first quarter of the year at $149.99 a pop.

What kind of hardware does it pack underneath the hood? For starters, there will be a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB RAM, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, 8GB of internal memory and a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, a front-facing VGA camera and a rechargeable Li-Poly battery. Not the best tablet on the block, but considering how little you pay for it, it does seem to be worth every penny as a “beginner’s tablet” if there is such a thing. [Press Release]
