The Coby Kyros is an inexpensive 7-inch resistive touchscreen tablet that seems designed for more simpler tasks such as browsing the web or reading e-books. The Android 2.1-powered tablet is fairly sparse, sporting an 800MHz processor, 4GB of internal memory, an 800 x 480 display resolution and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. It is thusly priced appropriately below the majority of newer tablets at $174.99. It also features an SD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage (which should appease those primarily interested in movies and music) as well as an HDMI output for connecting to your TV and a USB port for the addition of external mice or keyboards. E-books are supported in the ePub format and are read with the included Aldiko e-book reader. As another tablet without access to the Android Market, apps will be extremely limited via the AppsLib service, whose available apps only number in the hundreds.

Update: There are three sizes of Kyros tablets; 7-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch.
