UPDATE 12/21/10 – You can see our VIDEO review of the Coby Kyros tablet HERE.
Coby has announced another tablet called the Kyros MID7015. This is another resistive screen Android 2.1 tablet based on the same Telechips 8902 processor as the Augen Gentouch78, Sylvania Mini Tablet, and other cheap tablets out there. Devices with the Telechips processor will likely not see Android 2.2 upgrades, and even when they do they may not have Adobe Flash capability.

I am starting to not be a fan of these cheap devices. People purchase these thinking they are getting an iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab for a cheap price, when the experience is nothing close. These tablets do not come with Google apps such as GMAIL or the Android Market. They also give many new tablet owners a bad view of Android because most of these have outdated or crippled versions running. While I know everyone doesn’t have the money to purchase an iPad or Galaxy Tab there are other well priced tablets that offer a better tablet experience.
