Coby Electronics announced today that it is preparing to offer five new tablets running Google’s latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform in early 2012. The company promises to show the devices at CES in January, making it one of the first companies to have such an extensive lineup of Android 4.0 tablets.
The Coby tablets will have a range in sizes, including a 7-inch (MID7042), 8-inch (MID8042), 9-inch (MID9042), 9.7-inch (MID9742), and 10-inch (MID1042) models. All the tablets will have capacitive touchscreens and be powered by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor with 1GB of RAM. They will also support WiFi, HDMI 1080p output, and expandable storage up to 32GB.
The tablets are optimized for browsing the web, playing games, checking email, and watching videos. Although no prices have been announced yet, they will likely be in the lower-end range, since Coby is known for their budget-friendly devices. We’ll definitely keep an eye out for the Coby tablets at CES as well as other affordable alternatives.
