September is the annual big month of new product releases in consumer electronics, and with the tablet product segment being one of the hottest right now, Coby has introduced two new models, which are available in the special channels, too. 

Coby’s Kyros MID1125-4G and Kyros MID1126-4G are both 10.1-inch-screen tablets that deliver the web, email, and entertainment. Both models run on the Android 2.3 operating system and are powered by one-gigahertz processors. They can connect to the web wirelessly through Wi-Fi, and both output video at 1080p resolution and can be connected to HDTVs at home via mini-HDMI. According to Peter L. Kohan, Coby's premium sales representative, the main difference between the two units is screen orientation. 

The two tablets feature the AppsLib marketplace from which tablet users can download apps to their units, and users also can download books with the included Aldiko e-book reader app. When reading their favorite books or viewing content, users can select between portrait and landscape view modes with automatic orientation detection. 

The Coby models have front-facing cameras and microphones, and their four-gigabyte internal memory capacities can be expanded to 32 gigabytes by connecting optional microSDHC cards. The MID1125 and MID1126 use rechargeable lithium polymer batteries, and both come with USB cables, protective pouches, stereo earphones, and power adapters.
