Coby promises to show Android tablets at CES
Coby has just revealed it will bring five Android 4.0-powered tablets to CES in January. They will include the seven-inch MID7042, eight-inch MID8042, nine-inch MID9042, 9.7-inch MID9742, and 10-inch MID1042. All will be powered by the same 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor and up to 1GB of RAM.
Otherwise, Wi-Fi will be built-in, and all will have capacitive multi-touch screens. An HDMI output will also be present on some of them, and memory card slots will support as much as 32GB of extra storage space. All are said to be optimized, although their timing likely means they will run a stock or near-stock version of Android.
While pricing remains unknown, the tablets will go on sale during the first quarter of 2012.
