Daily Deal: Coby Kryos 9.7-Inch Android 4.0 Tablet for $137.99

130722-coby
Remember when you had to spend at least $400 to get a halfway decent tablet that could do anything? Thanks to the lowering costs and the Android platform, that has certainly changed. If you’re in the market for a new Android tablet and don’t have a ton of money to spend, the $137 Coby Kryos could be for you.

In particular, we’re looking at the Coby Kryos 9.7-inch tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That nearly 10-inch touchscreen has a 4:3 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. It’s powered by a 1GHz Cortex-A8 processor and 1GB of RAM, backed by 8GB of storage, microSDHC slot for up to 32GB more, 802.11/b/g/n Wi-Fi, 2MP rear camera, and HDMI-out.

Of course, at this price, there are some sacrifices that have to be made. For instance, as far as I can tell, this tablet doesn’t have official access to the Google Play Store for apps. That said, you do have open access to GetJar, which is being boasted as the largest free app store in the world with over 550,000 apps at your fingertips.

The regular retail price on the Coby Kryos 9.7-inch tablet (MID9740-8) is $174.99, but it’s on sale on Amazon for $37 off, bringing that down to $137.99, including free shipping.
