Coby Kyros vs. Apple iPad

The Coby Kyros 8-inch tablet delivers Android 2.2 for around $200. Other features include an HDMI output, microSD memory expansion, front-facing camera, and the AppsLib app store.

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.

The back of the Kyros includes a pair of stereo speakers. Noticeably absent is a rear-facing camera.

The bottom edge of the Kyros offers a bevy of ports, including microSD, power adapter input, Mini-USB, headphone output, and Mini-HDMI output.

Another unique feature of the Kyros is the inclusion of a dedicated button for opening the Android Web browser, along with standard buttons for menu, home, back, and search.

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.
