      Comments about Coby 4GB Kyros MID8048 8" Tablet (Black):

      I'm so sorry that I bought this tablet. I am not satisfied with it. There is no one to talk to help. I can't play any of my favorite games. I have to buy everything & I can't afford to. My grandson is 9 yrs old & has so many features on his tablet. I need help. As of last week, something happened and I can't get nothing. Google don't work. Can't get on to my Facebook or you tube. Nothing at all is happening. This tablet is garbage.

        Comments about Coby 4GB Kyros MID8048 8" Tablet (Black):

        I use this tablet primarily for checking email, web browsing, and YouTube videos. It does these things well. Recently, I started exploring apps from GetJar (comes with tablet). I downloaded a few apps (Facebook and Twitter apps), some which worked and some which didn't. Some apps are better than others but they don't have much to do with the tablet's performance, which is overall good. It does what I need it to do. The only thing I wished it did better was displaying videos on websites that are not YouTube (may be a Flash issue). It currently does not do this, but most of the time, I'm watching videos on YouTube anyway, so I don't see this as a major issue. It connects to WIFI easily and is fast.

              I bought this for my son for speech apps because I was told it was great tablet and worked wonderful. Boy that was so untrue. Half the time it is fully charged but then it wont turn on for a couple days then i recharge it and it will work for a few days. I do bot recommend this at all.

              Not the greatest tablet, but for the price, it's worth the money. Bought it to use as a display for an art/electronics project and it worked out great. Though the resolution leaves much to be desired (800x600), and the storage capacity is tiny (4gig), it has a snappy feel to it. It does feel fast, and that makes all the difference.
