          Comments about Coby 8GB MID9742 9.7" Android 4.0 Capacitive Multi-Touch Tablet:

          PRO:
          Good resolution, so it works well as a photo frame and video player, nice cameras for video chat. Descent speed while surfing basic HTML pages, but slows way down on media and Java content. Battery life is alright WITH task killer software.

          CON:
          No "native" Google app support, Bad app compatibility in general.
          Just awful touch screen capabilities, scrolling and zooming are tedious.
          Locating Ext Media in file browser is difficult at first.

          Used it for one week with Native OS then rooted and flashed custom Firmware and OS, now capable of Google App support, more app comparability, and better all around, except for touch screen, it still seems possessed at times.

                  I use it mostly to show pictures and have viewed a couple of movies off of my micro memory chip. It works just fine after you figure out some of the misteries of how the get to where you want to go. For this much equipment it is a very good price. B&H are a very reliable source.

                  The only thing that i suggest to change is the App Market use by this tablet. Instead of GetJar, could be more usefull the Android Market or the Google Play. But the rest is very good and i'm very pleased with this product.
