Coby's MP837 thankfully doesn't pick up where the MP836 left off (video)

Surely you remember the Coby MP836, the first touchscreen PMP from the low-end company that we had a bit of trouble with at last year's CES. Well, this year they're back at it again -- this time pimping the MP837, which really deserves more than a one digit jump. We're glad to report that they've made quite a bit of progress over the year, and that they've addressed many of the problems from the first one. It has a 3-inch touchscreen with haptic feedback, and it actually registered input this time (though we couldn't confirm that it's capacitive). The software was also a lot more polished, as was the demo we got from a PR rep on the floor. See for yourself after the break.
