It looks like the plush gray carpet in the Coby booth at CES isn't the only thing that might make you stumble. Coby's flagship PMP here at CES is the MP836, and it's safe to say it rubbed us the wrong way. The device itself wasn't that horrible to look at, but the interface and general aesthetics w

Remember those sub-$100 Coby netbooks that we deemed a hoax? Well, it looks like they might not be as hoax-y as we originally thought. Here at CES, Coby has a bunch of base models on the show floor in a myriad of color combos. The rep who showed us around made it clear that this was a \"market resea

Your HD Radio options are hardly as limited as they once were, but if you're still shopping around for one, you may want to take a gander at Coby's latest offerings, which promise the usual better-than-FM sound for a decent enough price. On the lower end, $100 will get you the HDR-650 component rad

We've all broken down and done a little late-night discount pharmacy gadget shopping, so we promise not to judge -- but if you've got a Coby DVD boombox stashed away in your place, you might want to run and unplug it real quick. Coby's just issued a recall of 12,000 TF-DVD170 and TF-DVD176 DVD boom

Mmm, nothing like a sleek, glossy black PMP to get your juices flowin'. If you tend to agree with that sentiment, Memup's Orizon should suit your fancy quite well, as the 30GB unit comes in an ebony outfit, sports a 4.3-inch 480 x 272 resolution display, and even includes an SD / MMC card slot to wa

Coby's quest to become more than the de facto house brand of street vendors and pharmacies worldwide by shipping semi-respectable PMPs and DAPs has always been held back by the company's insistence on making chinzty little boomboxes and CD players, and now it looks like it's paying the price: Coby

The first thing you notice about Coby's new MP-C8xx and MP-C6xx series of flash-based DAPs is the big honkin' lanyard ring wrapping pronouncedly around the bottom of each model -- if nothing else, we bet your keys would stay attached to these things for like a million years. We actually have to giv

It wasn't so long ago that we caught a glimpse of Coby's new media player, the PMP4320. But what we'd really like to get our hands on is Coby's apparent competitor to the GoGear SA9100 and SA9200, the MP-C951. Although it too was first demoed at CES, Coby has been saying on its site that the player

The folks at CNET recently got a chance to look at a pre-production unit of Coby's new PMP4320 portable media player and, while they're reserving final judgment until they get their hands on a finished device, they don't seem to have been all that impressed. Specs-wise, the PMP4320 treads along the
