Tech Fondles Index: April 12, 2012

I saw on their website that J&R finally got in that new Coby 9.7″ Android 4.0 tablet and I wanted to see it. So I put aside several hours yesterday to do a big Tech Fondle Safari to answer some questions I had about several devices.

I wanted to get this post up yesterday, but it was just too big to get done before sleep time. So here it is, the next day. And now in several parts, so readers can jump to sections of particular interest and not drown in boredom all at once.

This series of posts has over sixty photos. Covered are:

Part One:
• Motorola Xyboard
• Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
• Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

Part Two:
• Samsung Galaxy Note (one of two)
