So it is with American low-end electronics maker Coby, which has just made its latest round of Android tablets available for purchase, according to Liliputing."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1332951483.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>Many of these have strange and/or poor displays like 9.7" 1024x768 or 8" 800x600 but the 9" and 10" models with 1280x800 resolution could be just what you're looking for.&nbsp; While only a single core CPU they still have 1GB of RAM, MicroSD slot, HDMI port (I'm guessing it's MicroHDMI), and USB port (I'm guessing MicroUSB here too).&nbsp; Not sure about the GPU but it should be something respectable for an ICS tablet.&nbsp; I'd be more concerned about the GPU then having a dual-core processor as far as it being a useful device.&nbsp; One down side, they don't have access to Google Play Store but it comes with GetJar installed for you to find your favorite apps.&nbsp; The Amazon Appstore is always an option too.</p><p>So, would you buy a tablet from Coby?&nbsp; For only $279 to get the best model that's not a bad deal.&nbsp; Of course there are deals out there on dual-core tablets from last year that could come close to this price.</p>
