The Coby 10" tablet in a TA\BP Truckstop driving back from Kentucky. The price was above $300, which is far too expensive for a Coby device - but it was interesting to see the device positioned as an impulse electronics purchase for long-haul truckers, and shows just how pervasive tablet-format technology has become.
A quick Google Search shows the device available for under $200 from online retailers.
I gave the Coby 7015 to a kid who stayed with us for awhile when his family was moving from Ohio to Chicago. Loaded it up with various eReader apps, books and some music and some games - still rooted, of course. He used the thing daily when he was staying with us, and really seemed to enjoy the device. I actually feel that the Coby screen was more responsive for text input than my ASUS Transformer, in retrospect - a remarkable feat for a non-capacitive display. At the current street price of around $100 or less - the Kyros 7015 is still probably the best low-end tablet I've seen on the market. Build quality and reliability are not very even, and you need to be able to root it and put the Android Market on it to be able to fully leverage the device. Even then, there are a lot of popular apps like Netflix that are unlikely to ever work on the Kyros. If you go into it with eyes-wide-open and you know what you're doing, you could still do a lot worse than the Kyros, especially for the price. I'd warn that my experience is solely with the MID7015. Coby has since released a wide range of tablet devices including redesigned 7" tablets all the way up to capacitive 10" devices. I haven't had any hands on experience with those, so I can't say what they might be like.
