Coby Kyros Tablet Review
The Kyros performs well for the money if you can tolerate the limitations of the unit itself.
All things considered, you could by buying a worse tablet for the money, as the last time we reviewed something at this price point, it was so bad it could not be tested properly. Not only does the Coby Kyros MID8120 function with a relative degree of stability, but given its hardware it does a fair job.
Knock it if you will, but the battery life of the Kyros is great overall, even if the capabilities of the tablet are a little bit on the limited side. It's a tablet that can be bought for $100: of course it's going to be limited.
That being said, the resistive touchscreen is a huge drag, and the RAM makes operation of the operation of the tablet a little clunky, but usable. This is absolutely not going to make anybody forget about the iPad or various iterations of high-end Andrioid tablets, but the Kyros performs well for the money, if you can tolerate the limitations of the unit itself.
