12-Year-old girl’s Coby Kyros Tablet comes pre-loaded with porn: This is why you should buy an Apple iPad for a Christmas present!

December 31, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

That is exactly what Steve jobs will be telling you after a 12-year old girl was shocked to find pre-installed pornographic apps on her brand new Coby Kyros Tablet under her homes Christmas Tree. But seriously speaking, that is something that should not have happened at all and the people at Coby should have been just a lot more careful in repackaging and selling maybe a returned tablet. To add to the stupidity of the entire incident Coby refused to offer a simple exchange for the tablet when the distraught parents went to them for help!

Jay Hardin of Marion said he and his wife bought a pair of Coby Kyros Tablets for their daughters, aged 12 and 15 and the younger one soon discovered that there were pre-installed apps on her Kyros called “Butts! Boobs! Babes!” and “Undress Me”. When they took the tablet back to the folk at Coby, instead of apologizing and offering an exchange they simply denied any responsibility.

What seems the most stupid aspect of this all is it would have been in the company’s best interest to really say a quick ‘sorry’ and replace the device and ensure that this just gets forgotten quickly. But maybe they thought ‘any press is good press’ and hence told the parents that ‘nothing comes pre-installed and they were not in any way responsible’.

Now, there is now way a 12-year old would download the two apps that ended up there and Coby really should have showed more sense in handling the whole thing.
