                Comments about Coby 4GB MID8042 8" Android 4.0 Capacitive Multi-Touch Tablet:

                What about device, it's very reliable for that price. Some problem was with wall charger or tablet because it could be charged from USB only. So I had to exchange tablet to same model in B&H Store. It took few minutes just. Another one doesn't have such problem.I was need some device for my kid which could be used as video player mounted at headrest carseat. I though about DVD Player but it just a player. I wanted to have something which will be useful when my boy stays older. And I decided that it should be an Android Tablet. After reading many reviews I realized that it must be 7 Inch capacitive touch screen and at least 512 Mb RAM. This tablet 8 Inches and 1 Gb RAM and price very seductive for offer features.Another weird problem with Skype. But it's software problem because camera shows good picture of you on tablet while your interlocutor see you with pink-green vertical lines.I'm very satisfied with that device.
