Coby’s latest in budget slates hit the federal testing tables on Friday, getting the customary teardown and tell-all photo shoot. The Coby Kyros MID7012 comfortably fits a 800Mhz processor, 256MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, WiFi and a microSD card slot into its case. The seven-inch Gingerbread tablet hasn’t landed on Coby’s US website yet, but nimble fingered Googlers can find the slab for about $100.

YouTube — no longer the favorite repository for cats playing pianos — has launched its movie rental service for folks across the pond. Previously available in North America only, web denizens in Ol’ Blighty will now have access to brand new flicks for 24-hours at $3.99 a pop. Looks like all Mountain View needs now is Hulu to fully control the play-shifted portal.

Well, it was fun while it lasted, but Xperia Play users can no longer claim Minecraft Pocket Edition as their own. An updated version of the app has hit the Android Market today, bringing with it support for a range of additional devices running Android 2.1 or higher — although it’s still said to be “Xperia Play optimized.” Same $6.99 price tag as before, but there is a free demo version available if you’re still not sure about the whole Minecraft phenomenon.

The first demo we saw was actually the same haptic smartphone prototype that was unveiled back in May, but we thought it’d be nice to give it a go with our very own hands — read on to find out how well it performed.

Walk along that sparse borderline between Bluetooth headset and pearl necklace and you’ll eventually come across a company called Novero. It specializes in vaguely ridiculous bejeweled wireless things, but it has some serious products too — including these surreptitious little Rockaway earphones that have just been approved by the FCC. They’ll cope with hands-free calling, 5.5 hours of stereo music and 250 hours in standby — plus they weigh just 10 grams. Perfect for any NYC cabbie wanting to flout the rules at 50MPH.

The Ultrabooks are coming, and it looks like ASUS’ first foray into thin and light computing will officially arrive on October 11th in New York. According to a UX series landing page, we need only wait 15 more days before getting our hands the ASUS UX21 and its larger, but still svelte sibling, the UX31, once again. Frankly, we can hardly wait for their arrival, but patience is a virtue, right?
