Coby Kyros 8-inch tablet

One of the unique features of the Coby Kyros is its 8-inch screen size. Most tablets we've seen sit in the 7-inch or 10-inch camps (though at this price most are 7 inches). Unfortunately, the extra screen real estate can't make up for the poor screen quality.

Coby Kyros vs. Apple iPad

The difference in screen quality between the Apple iPad (left) and Coby Kyros (right) is night and day--not to mention the fact that the Kyros uses a clunky resistive screen.
