LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Coby Electronics , the leader in consumer electronics gear designed to complement every lifestyle, "powers-up" with a wide array of feature-rich, priced-right new products, including the premiere COBY KYROS™ collection of Android™-operated Internet tablets. Coby expands its offerings to include 3D and Internet TVs and, for the first time, large screen LED and LCD models. All of Coby's anticipated introductions, including COBY SNAPP® pocket camcorders, 3D portable DVD players and more, will be showcased at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, Booth #11932 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 6-9, 2011.

On the heels of the sold-out success of its first tablet introductions in Q4 2010, Coby presents five new Android-OS 2.3-powered touchscreen tablets for 2011 — all priced within reach: the COBY KYROS MID7025 and COBY KYROS MID7026, 7" resistive TFT LCD touchscreens with 800 x 480 (16:9) and 800 x 600 (4:3) display resolution, respectively; COBY KYROS MID8025, 8" resistive TFT LCD touchscreen and 800 x 600 (4:3) display resolution; and COBY KYROS MID1025 and COBY KYROS MID1026, 10.1" capacitive TFT LCD touchscreens with 1024 x 600 (16:9) and 1024 x 768 (4:3) display resolution, respectively.

Each new model in the 2011 KYROS range includes 4GB built-in internal memory, expandable to 32GB with optional microSDHC card; high-speed 1 GHz processor; high-speed networking support (Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g) for wireless Internet connectivity; access to 1080p HD video on an HDTV with optional HDMI cable; built-in front-facing camera and integrated microphone and speakers. COBY KYROS tablets offer two unique apps, Aldiko™ E-book for downloading and reading thousands of e-books, and AppsLib™ for browsing, downloading and installing apps.

In addition, Coby will play a key role in the TV industry this year with its spectacular new line of wall-mountable units – from 22" to 55" – featuring super-thin LED and 3D technology and Internet connectivity. Many of the new models also include 1080p high-resolution displays and advanced motion engine capability that delivers lightning-fast video. Coby's feature-rich and ultra-slim LED lineup is Energy Star 4.2 compliant.

The company's debut collection of widescreen 3D HDTVs with LED Backlight Technology includes six striking 1080p units, each with two active-shutter 3D glasses with the exception of the 22" model, which offers unique 3D viewing without special glasses. And this year marks the introduction of Coby's five new Internet TVs, each powered by Android™ OS. The TVs feature a built-in web browser, play digital media files from USB flash drives and support wired or wireless Internet connectivity.

Coby also delivers the 3D experience with an exciting new 3D Soundbar and innovative portable DVD player that simulates 3D visual effect for unmatched impact. The CSMP88 Multimedia 3D Soundbar Speaker System is a complete surround sound experience from a single speaker that allows consumers to enjoy their music and games in a whole new dimension with 3D sound technology from Sonic emotion™. Coby's V-Zon® TF3DVD7019 is a 7" portable combo 3D DVD/CD/MP3 player that enables consumers to watch their favorite DVDs in 3D without the need for special glasses. The unit's advanced simulated 3D engine creates depth from regular 2D content to deliver the dramatic viewing experience consumers crave.

And the success of the company's popular COBY SNAPP pocket camcorders is well-poised to continue in 2011 with three new offerings, the COBY SNAPP CAM3002 MINI CAMCORDER, COBY SNAPP CAM4002 SWIVEL CAMCORDER and COBY SNAPP CAM5002 HD CAMCORDER. The units come pre-installed with muvee™ automatic video-editing software for easy editing and uploading on-the-go to help consumers create professional-looking home videos.
