Summary: The Coby Kyros MID 1042 is one of those tablets where a review could go either way. It’s right in that gray area of being decent enough to not bad and but still not quite earn the label of good. I’ll be honest with you; I don’t like using this tablet. Given the issues I encountered, I have to say that I find this tablet quite frustrating. I think there are better options in this price range.
Summary: Received tablet as described and shipping was great. The tablet works just fine, no defects that I can see. Charging now and looks like the battery will be just fine. Great deal and great tablet.
Cons: This piece of junk is utterly incompatible with itself. It cannot run android marketplace, even with a lot of help. It is my understanding that the 7inch version can be taught, but this 10inch one just utterly refuses. Also, even though Android is Google, the Google apps don't work on this junk. I confirmed this with Coby customer assistance. Their answer was just that it will not work with this machine.
Summary: I have owned two other Coby products (not from Newegg) and they were worthless also. I guess I am a slow learner but from now on NO MORE COBY PRODUCT for me, even if they are giving them away. Too bad this rating could not have been a NO EGG as that is the real rating for this product.
Pros: The price was very good and the tablet looks nice. But don't let that fool you.
Cons: Nothing like a good price on JUNK. The unit lasted 3 days and then all the symptoms of other website reviews occurred. Constant crashes, slow, low battery life etc. This Android DOES NOT function like all other Androids. They have very limited apps and most of the ones they do have do not work with this machine. Cody customer support is nonexistent (call them or email them and see what you get) so thank goodness for Newegg's superior customer policies.
