    Does anybody know anything about the 7127? I was wondering why it is not mentioned on here very much. I am getting one today in the mail from Amazon. Should I exchange it for a 7022?

    OK. I just answered my own question. The internals on the 7127 and 7022 are the same. That is what I wanted to know. I'll just read the 7022 threads.

    Will get my 7127 tomorrow replacing my 7022. Had problems with SD card and Coby recommended that I have the 7022 replaced. Long story short, I prefer the controls on the 7127, including the center mounted camera. Let's see what this one shows.

    11/11
    Have been playing with the MID7127 all afternoon and evening. I really think it is superior to the MID7022. Controls are better and there have been changes to the Android implementation. A couple of complaints. The screen needs to be calibrated, but the calibration item is gone from the Settings widget. In addition to the screen hog Google search bar, there is now an icon on the upper right (with the WiFi icon) that does the same thing. I would delete the Google search bar, but I don't see any way to get it back. applslib is gone, but GetJar seems to be OK. I did add Android Market (no root necessary) and Flash. More later.

    both models are good, the older one 7022 has capacitive screen so does the 7127. the improvements are with the 7127 having dual speakers built in and lighted buttons rather than on the sides. Both a great investment.

    The search bar is a widget. I you want it back, just add the widget back to your home screen.

    well 7127 sells for $176 on amazon and at toys r us they seem to have knocked the price down of the 7022 to $150-160 about every other week however it is currently listed at $180.

    Amazon 7127 is still the deal though because your not paying tax rates as you would at toys r us

    From what I have seen, the 7022 is usually more expensive than the 7127. Also discovered that the 7022 does not recognize more than a double touch (using the MultiTouch app). The 7127 recognizes as many fingers as you can put on the screen at once. I don't think it translates to any capability other than the standard zoom and contract.

    Hmmmm. Aren't there any bigger differences than the speakers and buttons? That doesn't seem enough to justify having two different models. Usually when there are different products, the company is trying to market to different user groups. Can't see where that would be the case here at only approximately $20 difference and otherwise identical specs.
    Got my 7022 for $160 at Toys r Us bout two weeks ago.
    I never even look at the buttons (with one on the front and one on the edge it's really not that tuff) and I don't care about sound quality so I guess I picked the right one of the two.
    Sure there isn't bigger internal memory or SOMETHING on the 7127?

    Coby seems to keep upgrading tablets every few months with little changes as once they sell the tablet to you no more money is brought in. The 7127 is more of a new design than anything since they just took the 7015 design and upgraded the internals and out came the 7022. the 7127 design will probably be used for future models like I was with 8127.

    I agree with everything you're saying...seen it many times...just look at our automotive industry. Seems kind of goofy tho to redesignate a model number when all you've done is a minor upgrade. Why not 7022a, 7022b, 7088c, etc. instead of going 7015, 7016 etc? I know there's no good answer, and I'm just blabbing, but it sure does muddy the water when you're a newbie trying to scope out which tablet you want to spend your $$$ on.
    There. I'm finished. :)

    It seems to me that the 7022 is the odd one out in the 2nd Gen Coby tablets whereas the 7127 more logically fits in the 3rd Gen range, I.E. there's no 8022/1022 models.

    From what I've seen the 3rd gen range appears set for 6 models at this stage with the first and last numbers designating size and touchscreen type, e.g. 1025 is a 10" resistive while the 7127 is a 7" capacitive while the hardware is otherwise the same (x12y naming convention, x=7/8/10" y= 5/7 [Resistive/Capacitive]).

    How did the 1016 fit in? I feel like I'm flogging a very dead horse, but now I'm interested. Maybe their naming formula encompasses chaos theory HAHAHAHAHA!!!

    1016 is 1st Gen, I don't know if they have a naming convention for those so I specifically didn't mention them.
