E259210 - Coby 9.7" Tablet 8GB RAM with iLuv Portable Speaker Case
A Very Good Tablet
I do not understand the two reviews talking about the Coby Tablet not having the android market, when the description and the host explained that it came with Getjar. Getjar has all free apps which is what makes this tablet so good. I have purchased the Apple Ipad but it required a credit card in order to setup the tablet (with identity theft I do not like giving out my credit card number) so I returned it. This tablet is good for a person who already has a laptop, and just need something small to carry in a purse or briefcase, a student, check emails, surf the web, edit a document (Documents to go is free on this tablet it costs on the ipad). My sister has an Apple ipad and she told me that some of the games and apps I was able to download, she had to pay for. My niece who is a game guru stated that the Getjar market had the latest version of Angry Bird which is free. Also, the Coby customer service staff is great and helpful. I dont't know about you but I love free. I hope this post help those who are on the fence, by the way the FM radio app is superb.
Good concept but poor quality
This tablet would have been great if it only had the full android market. I purchased mine as TSV but it kept going off by it self. It did it own manufactures reset by itself when it finally turned on. Coby had a great concept. it had everything i wanted except for the android market. it were very fast with the 4.0 system. if it wasn't for the constant shutting down i would have kept it.
Lacking in Some Areas
I purchased this tablet previously when it was a todays special and before it came with the speaker case. The case would not have changed my mind to send it back. The tablet is not approved for the google app store, google play, which is equivilent to the Apple app store for ipad. Yes, you can get most of the apps from Amazon but not all and it is not as smooth or easy as google play or apple app store. That was the deal breaker for me as I wanted to use this for business and pleasure and needed the availability of the apps. I would have kept this tablet if it was approved for google play and I could dl apps from there. The get jar app store provided is less than impressive, having mostly second rate, practically useless apps. Now, the tablet itself is fine. Yes, the new ipad is a better picture quality but the quality of this tablet's screen resolution is as good as or better than anything out there other than the ipad. If you don't mind jumping through hoops to get apps at amazon or your needs are basic then you won't go wrong with this reasonably priced tablet, But if your looking for something that will rival your friends ipad, then don't waste your time with this, as, like me, you will send it back.
"I purchased this, recently, for my son, whom loves it! I had bought another, previously, as The Daily Value, which it is exactly what my daughter needs, to complete her college classes from home, due to a new baby! I think with this one being "Android", it makes a difference!, Although, I'm not that technically savvy enough, & both children seem to enjoy their own, for different reasons! Definitely, easy to use, & a GREAT PRICE for something that is capable of soooo much! periwinkle
