Even Coby, which usually imports cheaply built Chinese electronics, has entered the tablet market with the Coby Kyros. Coming in at under $150, it’s neither a Google-authorized device (so no Android Marketplace or Google Mobile apps) nor does its include AppsLib marketplace contain very many popular apps. Fortunately for TechRepublic contributor Donovan Colbert, it’s not too difficult to root the device and get the Android Marketplace installed. Even then, it has some difficulties with the hardware, including the touch screen and Wi-Fi.
What technical skills/knowledge are required to "root"?
