    Good price. However, after looking at that page, I don't think it's the same as the Kyros MID7024-G I have. It is the 70204, at least that is model listed in three different places on that page. It has Android 2.1 (or 2.2 depending on which specs you look at on that page...it says both, so I would confirm with JR.com before purchasing). Also, it indicates a 720MHz processor. Mine is 1GHz. Another difference is that the JR.com specs lists that you can use up to a 16GB microSDHC card, while mine supports 32GB. Outside of those differences, it appears to be 'the same'. :p

    Anyway, just wanted to bring that to attention that this 'model' might not be the MID7024-G.

    Hi, I found QVC.com has the MID1024-4G on sale for $179.96, free shipping.
    Everyone else I see has this for at least 266$:confused:... not sure why it is priced so cheap. here are the specs direct from the site.

Plus, you can also download popular apps and games from the AppsLib marketplace. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it! From Coby.

    I noticed the mis-typed the screen resolution (should read 1024x600).
    This looks like it is the newest one too... Any thoughts?

    Another note to that, I just called QVC customer service, they verified the product information/specifications, and they also verified that it IS available/NOT on backorder.

    HMMMMMMMM....

    The page is gone. I do feel there was an error somewhere as the 7" is still 189.86

    You are right, the page is gone now. I called them again and they said the ship date is still set for June 9th. That would be great if there was a price misprint and I ended up getting the mid1024 for 179.

    I paid 159.99 brand new from Amazon shipped, i received mine today and im already falling deeply in love with it. Amazon for the win and AndroidTablets.net forums for the win for helping me learn how to get the most out of my purchase.

    Picked up a 7022 from Toys R Us for $179.99, and it came with a $20 gift card. So far, I'm very happy with it.

    That is a rip off. You can get it for much cheaper on amazon. Besides if you aren't to keen on the 8 inch the 7022 is 179.99 and it has a capacitive screen and gingerbread.

    Got the 7024 from Walmart for $169 and the 7022 from ToysRUs for $179, received a $25 gift card with the purchase, so more like $154.

    My local Brandsmart is advertising a Coby 10incher with capacitive screen for $259. It's the brand new version of the 7022, only 10 inches.
