The Coby MP826 is a touchscreen, video MP3 player featuring a 2.8” touchscreen display for quick and easy access to media files. In particular, this unit builds from the MP700 series by trading touchpad controls in favor of full touchscreen functionality. Like its counterparts, however, the MP3 player allows users to play music, view videos, review documents, and access FM radio. It too is available in 4GB to 16GB capacities, and it relies on a USB 2.0 interface for fast file transfers. One notable difference is an enhanced battery that offers a much better 25-hour lifespan.
