LAS VEGAS - Continuing our “Count the Tablets” coverage of CES, we bring you tablets five tablets from a company called Coby. The Coby Kyros line runs on Android, and the company is really mixing up the form factors with 7”, 8” and 10” versions. Better yet, there are actually different versions within those sizes.
And best of all, three of the tablets run Android OS 2.1, also known as Eclair, which is the version before the current version, Android OS 2.2, also known as Froyo. It’s only three versions older than the not-yet-released version of Android that Google is actually recommending for tablets, version 3.0, or Honeycomb.
The fourth model, the 10” version, runs Android OS 2.3, which also has not yet been released. At least that’s what it will run when it ships. The model on display at CES was actually running Android OS 2.2.
The specs below are taken from the placards Coby was displaying with each tablet. We mention this because other reports on the Internet about these devices list some specs that are different from the ones the company was displaying.
So, without further ado, here is the Kyros line from Coby.

Coby was also showing a Windows tablet, but there was no information to come by to tell us much of anything about the device.
Stay tuned for many, many more tablets direct from CES.
