    The next generation Coby tablets have been removed from Amazon.com and even from Coby's own web site. Does anyone know what is going on? It's not justing the next gen (models numbers ending in 5), but the gen after that were previously available for pre-order on Amazon and elsewhere on the web (model numbers ending in 6)...

    I thought they removed the 7025/8025/1025's a while ago. Since some of the sites that had this unit for sale are listing it as discontinued now, I wonder if there was a problem getting GingerBread to run on the 7024 hardware, or if there was a falling out between Coby and the manufacture. Heck, it could be that they just felt that having "next" tablets pre ordering now was hurting the sales of the 7024/8024/1024 line.

    Or it could have been the scathing review that one of the next gen models received from Cnet:

    Coby Kyros Review - Tablets - CNET Reviews

    I actually found this review somewhat interesting, since I have a 7024 myself (very similar to the 8025) and since Amazon.com has 74 customers reviews for the 7024 with an average score of 3.5 stars, VERY high score for a tablet that sells for around $150.

    I think Cnet may have trying to compare the Kyros to the iPad or other more expensive tablets, which really is unfair of them when you consider the price point of the Coby models.

    Cnet biggest drag is they hate the resistive touch screen, though I THINK that the 3rd gen models (model numbers ending in 6) will feature capacitive screens, though I am not certain.

    Well I found a blog that seems to have some info it says next Gen Coby tablets were supposed to release in March but was postponed to May/June... which means they could pop their head any time now (the link is below).

    Here are the new tablets and their prices on Amazon.com; they all still have resistive screens (except for the 10 incher which also has better screen resolution), but these tablets have Gingerbread instead of Froyo :)

    MID7025 (7″ 800×480 resistive): $172.99
    MID7026 (7″ 800×600 resistive): $172.99
    MID8025 (8″ 800×600 resistive): $190.99
    MID1025 (10.1″ 1024×600″ capacitive) $259.99

    Coby Kyros new line not shipping soon.

    I found this quote very interesting:

    The fact that the unit has not been released as expected, and was removed from Coby's web site and all other retail sites, makes me wonder if Coby couldn't get the 7025 to work with Gingerbread (as Driggs suggested). Why else would they refuse to turn it on for PC Magazine?

    Full article is here (below), which also claims Coby to release a capacitive version of the 7025 in late 2011 (this would have to be referring to the 7026...), I'd be all over that!

    U
    pdate: According to this article (below) the 7026 does NOT have a capacitive touchscreen, just a higher screen resolution (600 instead of 480)

    heesh, are we gonna have to wait for the 7027 before we get capacitive touch on a 7 inch model from Coby?

    Holy Cow man you are correct! The Mid7022 runs a 1 Ghz, Cortex A8, Android 2.3 and has a 7 inch capacitive screen (also has built in webcam). They have them at Toys R Us and apparently nowhere else, yet. Price is only $179.99 (apparently there is $25 rebate card of some kind that you get when you purchase). HOLY COW this is the tablet I have bee waiting for!

    Does anyone on here have one of these? If so, thoughts?

    I think its a good tablet but will be much better when rooted. Can't get the market working so I've been sideloading all my apps. With a custom rom. This baby will fly but not bad at all right now.

    Although not the easiset thing i have ever done i get great joy from running honeycomb over gingerbread on my coby 7015. What a ride with the likes of tipster cranking the Rom and Mod handle. Its been more fun than video games! RJ

    Even though they are coming out with this newer tablet, the 7015 will be way better than it for now since it has a large possibility of mods that this one doesnt now.

    The 7022 probably still has 2.1 eclair and will not be able to be rooted for at least a few more months.

    I am running 2.3.1 and happy. It is running 30X faster than the tablet stock and I love it!
