Coby Set to Debut Five Ice Cream Sandwich Tablets at CES 2012

Coby MID Series tabletsIt is pretty big news these days when any company talks about releasing a tablet with Ice Cream Sandwich as the OS. Tech gurus get all giddy just thinking about one tablet and to think of a single company releasing five is pretty much unheard of. However, that is exactly what Coby is planning to do by debuting five Ice Cream Sandwich tablets at the upcoming CES convention.

Coby Electronics Corporation has just announced that it will usher in the new year with the launch of the company’s all new, highly anticipated collection of Android 4.0 OS tablets. The company is set to debut a total of five introductory tablets in the hopes of giving consumers a plethora of options to chose from.

This new Coby Android 4.0 collection is set to debut in the first quarter of 2012 and the company is confident that the prices are one of the big things consumers will be interested in seeing. According to VP of Marketing for Coby Jodi Sally, “Coby is thrilled to announce our premiere range of feature-packed Android 4.0-powered Internet tablets that will put the world in consumers’ hands as never before.”

Sally went on to say, “We also are proud to be among the first companies to make available a wide range of the newest, Ice Cream Sandwich-operated units, helping further underscore our commitment to meeting the demands of a broad base of consumers with innovative products in the hottest CE categories.”

This assortment of Android 4.0 tablets hopes to capitalize on the success of Coby’s current top-selling internet tablets and will include the 7″ MID7042, 8″ MID8042, 9″ MID9042, 9.7″ MID9742 and 10″MID1042. In addition to coming with Ice Cream Sandwich as an operating system, the 8″ MID8042 and 9.7″ MID9742 both come with a 4:3 aspect ratio.

All of these tablets will also feature 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPUs and will offer capacitive multi-touch screens, up to 1GB of RAM, expandable memory up to 32GB, WiFi and HDMI 1080p output. Coby has, it seems, streamlined its features to address the core applications of a tablet like web browsing, playing games, emailing and viewing media.

Short-throw projectors only require half the projection distance of traditional projectors. The projector can be placed just a foot or so from the screen. This is nice because it keeps the projector and screen near each other instead of having a long throw projector that people can accidentally block.
