ATTENTION: Apparently Coby is going through a bankruptcy so I have been told by user's here.
You may wish to consider a NEWER Android tablet like Nexus 7 or a Windows 8 model with the
newer Atom Z2760 Processors which allow up to 4 1080p videos to be played at the same time.
ALERT: GOOGLE HAS INTRODUCED THE NEXUS 7 TABLET WITH TEGRA 3 PROCESSOR FOR GREAT GAMES, ITS $199 FOR 8GB, $249 FOR 16GB
IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING A TABLET AT THE SAME PRICE AS THE COBY I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU GET THE NEXUS 7, IT HAS A TEGRA 3 AND
THE PRICE IS TOO WONDERFUL TO PASS UP. COBY HAS TO LOWER THE PRICES ON THESE TABLETS IF THEY EXPECT TO KEEP SELLING THEM.
THE COBY 10" MODEL MID1042-8 IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE ORDER FOR 199.98, I'M NOT SURE IF THE PHOTO HERE IS ACCURATE IT
SHOULD LOOK LIKE THE 9742-8 MODEL BUT A LARGER SCREEN, THIS IS A GREAT PRICE FOR A 10 INCH TABLET
NOTICE: If you have problems putting in a microSD card and it says "Card Damaged or Card not Readable Reinsert Card" try
ejecting and inserting it again while tablet is on. If it reads it go to settings, click Storage, scroll down to EXT SD CARD
and click on MOUNT SD CARD. If you get the same message, do this. Leave the card inside the tablet. Hold power button down to
SHUT OFF tablet, then after shutdown press and hold power until Coby logo screen appears again, your microSD card should be Mounted.
Coby has done there homework. They have been around since 1990 and are not a fly by night corporation. This tablet is very responsive,
no lags whatsoever. Aside from not including the Android Marketplace (now known as Google Play) you can download Amazon App Store
application from Amazon.com using the browser which came on your tablet. It has all the hot apps you would need. The GetJar simply
shows you FREE apps, they change every week so it's a good place for free apps, but not all of them are something you'd want.
Check out 1Mobile for other android applications as well as hundreds of Android related sites searching your favorite web search page.
WARNING: OLDER COBY MODEL "ROOT INSTRUCTIONS" MAY NOT WORK FOR THIS NEWER GENERATION OF COBY TABLETS, PLEASE DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE
TRYING THEM. COBY DOES NOT MIND IF YOU ROOT THE TABLET TO GET ANDROID MARKETPLACE (Google Play), I WOULD PROCEED WITH CAUTION.
Firefox 14 for Android includes Flash support, as well as tap-to-play for plug-ins. However according to Mozillas site they have only
tested the software on some tablets, and don't have Coby's newest models listed. Right now you are limited to using the built in browser
and youtube player for youtube videos. You can however play flash videos after installing the Adobe Flash 11 apk, with VLC Player and
other Flash Video capable players. FLV Player lets you play flash videos without Adobe Flash installed as it claims. Playing flash video
from your microSD card is not a problem. Until Mozilla works harder on tablet versions of Firefox and Aurora, the browser which comes with
the Coby plays youtube videos just fine in the a web browser window.
You may have issues finding Adobe Flash, but searching 1Mobile.com with your browser on your Coby tablet. In the search feature enter
Adobe Flash at the top of the webpage. In the results page the top should show the Adobe Flash red icon with F in the middle. Click
on this icon. It will take you to the next page, where you need to click on "Download APK" with a little green Android symbol. After
download, tell the tablet to Install the Application.
After that your all set, I would recommend downloading this first, after its installed, turn off the tablet and back on again. So far
played Angry Birds, a blast on a larger screen. No issues unlike my Samsung Galaxy S phone, this thing hasnt crashed yet, works
flawlessly, has a beautiful vibrant screen and way better then a Kindle Fire! You can get a Kindle Reader app from Amazon for free and
You can also download an app called FLV Player from Amazon App store, its free and will play flash video files without needing Adobe
Flash to do so, its also good for playing FLV files from external microSD card's you insert in the tablet.
The weight of this tablet doesn't hurt your hands using it for long periods. The sound is really good, two speakers are on the left back
side but easy to hear, even when its placed on a flat surface, though I always hold it in my 2 hands. Would recommend a few apps like
PaperPort Anywhere, you also need the PC version, allows your tablet to print out webpages and documents to your wireless printer.
Syncables 360 Home Network v.7 for the tablet and PC, lets you sync your Movie/Photos/Documents/Music folders on your PC so you can
access files from the computer. A reference app would be The Complete Android Guide eBook, for learning more about Android.
Using this tablet has been great, 4 month's so far but everything is flawless, screen is awesome, easy to look at. If you get a browser
page which doesn't respond for whatever reason, or a game, press the power button down a second and it will ask if you want to close
the browser page, or the game you are playing. I just choose WAIT and it usually starts again from where it left off.
Playing games like Random Mahjong Pro is awesome, it looks so good on here. Crossword puzzle lovers will enjoy Super Word Search! Get
Documents To Go 3.0 to read all those documents. The back camera works really well, front camera is good if your in good lighting and
not to shady. Movies also look great on here, it's a small screen so your not going to notice a lot of pixels as you would from a larger
tv screen. Even my 55 inch tv shows pixels if I stand 1 foot away from it, the only way you won't is if you get a 4K Projector for $2499
and I would recommend a ScreenInnovation's Black Diamond No Edge projection screen.
For the price of these you can not go wrong, I would definately get this over a Kindle Fire, it's just designed much better, sleeker and
looks great, larger screen. You can also get the 10" Coby 1042-8 tablet coming May 22, 2012. It's available for preorder, its the same as
this model just larger. After using Android phones which have to many issues, I use my Palm Pixi Plus for calls its flawless, this is the
best Android related device I have tried, and it's the FIRST one to have ICS 4.0.3 PRE Installed! Don't believe the reviews, Coby was first!
If you have any qualms, just get the SquareTrade warranty plan, and for another 5 bucks you can insure it in case you drop it and break it
or you spill coffee on it, they will replace it. Nothing I could say negative about this tablet, it does everything very well, in a great
design. I've used electronics for 32 years so I'm pretty well versed in this kind of industry, this would be a great gift for your kids or
your significant other. If you dont need those fancy video game style games, but even most of those will work on here, without special 3D
effects like water splashing on the screen, this is definately a great tablet! Would recommend trying Mozilla's Firefox browser for
Android, its a great browser on PCs too and I find it much more secure than Internet Explorer. You can download the .APK file from the
following link: download.cnet.com using the browsers tablet, search for Mozilla Firefox for Android and get version 14.
Simply copy this file to a microSD card if you download the file to your PC first, insert the microSD card into the Coby tablet and using
the file exchange, click on Favorites and it should show your microSD card, tap there and it will show the APK files on your microSD card.
This tablet plays SHADOWGUN just fine, for all those gamers. I've found that if you go into settings,click on Applications and tell it to
install the Shadowgun game to your microSD card, it plays a lot smoother and faster using the microSD card. You can get it on Amazon Appstore,
plus a lot of other cool games. Virtual City from G5 games is awesome, if you like games like Simcity. Electronic Arts also has games for
Android but they are on Google Play, you could save the file to a memory card and "sideload" it on to the tablet, or perhaps they have them
in Amazon App store, if not ask EA to expand the places you can buy there games. After a few hours of gaming and browsing and some videos,
the battery level hardly even moved. WiFi signal is very strong, usually 5 out of 5 bars, once in a while it will drop to 4 but it does NOT
affect the wifi signal. As it has a plastic backing, there are no issues like the METAL backing on OLDER Asus Transformer tablets (100 and 200).
You can find my video review, mostly showing me using this tablet, doing various things. I recommend you use Lens Wipes like Walgreens sells
for LCD/Glasses, with AntiScratch/Antifog features. It has the Walgreens brand on the box, this keeps the screen responding as it should
without fingerprints and grease from your skin on the glass itself. For a nice tablet case, check out Amazon for SumacLife or other brands,
they have MID9042-8 in there product specs for tablet cases that work well with Coby, would recommend one with padding inside and a mesh
for storing any manuals, and pockets on the outside for the charging adapter and connection cables.
