There are so many tablets form different companies available in the market that at times, it becomes really difficult to decide which tablet you should buy and which should not be considered at all. As a matter of fact, most of the tablets that are available in market these days, have got some great specs and before you go ahead and make any decision about any tablet, it is better to read its review. In this post, I’m going to review a tablet called Coby Kyros MID9742 that is not very famous but it has got some great qualities. May be, you really like this tablet after reading its review that but is completely up to you.

Hardware Features

The weight of the tablet is only 1.27 pounds that makes it very light weight tablet in the market. The length of is 9.6 inches and the width of the screen is 7.4 inches while the thickness is only 0.44 inches. The entire body of the tablet is built with plastic and there is one thing that I can say about Kyros MID9742 that it is not going to impress a lot of people by its design so you better keep this thing in mind. Along the top edge, you will find Volume, power and back buttons and when you will look at the right side of this tablet, you will find DC in, micro USB port, microSD card slot, a 3.5mm headphone jack and also a micro HDMI port as well. The tablet is not an expensive purchase so you can expect such kind of design from it. There is a full size USB port in this device so you can connect your USB flash drive, a USB keyboard or any other USB device with it. The MD9742 tablet has got 8GB of internal storage but you can also use an extended microSD card to increase the memory of tablet. It supports up to 64GB of card.


The screen size of the tablet is 9.7 inches and it has got “1024 x 768” pixel resolution. The screen resolution is good but as compared to other tablets in the market, it is nothing in today’s time. I didn’t really like the way things look on the display screen of this tablet and I doubt that you will also find anything interesting in the display characteristics of this tablet as well.


However, when it comes to camera, we have got two cameras in this device. One is the rear camera of 2 mega pixel and the other is 0.3 mega pixel front facing camera. Of course, the standard of the cameras is not good and it is also depicted in the quality of pictures taken by those cameras as well.

Software and Performance

One thing that I liked about this tablet and I’m sure you will also like is the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system installed in it. However, you will not find the common Google Apps on this tablet like Gmail, Google Talk and much more.
