Lake
Success, N.Y. - Coby plans to launch new Kyros tablets and add access to the GetJar market of free downloadable Android
apps.

MID812

Under
the GetJar arrangement, Kyros owners will be able to click on a pre-installed
GetJar app to download apps for education, social networking and messaging, entertainment, finance, food, games, health, search, lifestyle, maps, music, news and weather, photos, productivity and the like.

 GetJar will come preloaded on Coby's newest Android 2.3 tablets beginning this
month with the 7-inch MID7012 and followed in time for
the holidays by three new capacitive-touch models. Those are the 7-inch MID7127, 8-inch MID8127 and
10.1-inch MID1126. Coby's
first three tablets, available earlier this year, offered resistive
touchscreens.

GetJar also is compatible with existing Kyros
tablets through an APK accessible on the Coby Electronics website.

 GetJar of San Mateo, Calif., promotes itself
as the world's largest free app store.
