12-year-old's tablet pre-loaded with porn

MARION, Ill., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- An Illinois couple said their 12-year-old daughter was shocked to find the tablet PC she received for Christmas was pre-loaded with pornographic applications.

Jay Hardin of Marion said he and his wife bought a pair of Coby Kyros pads, tablet computers similar to the Apple iPad, for their daughters, ages 12 and 15, and the younger girl quickly discovered her computer was pre-loaded with two applications called "Boobs! Butts! Babes!" and "Undress Me," WSIL-TV, Harrisburg, Ill., reported Thursday.

Hardin said the Kyros, which his daughter has now nicknamed the "PervPad," still bore its original package seals when he purchased it.

Coby officials said the computers should not have come pre-loaded with any applications.

"There is nothing pre-programmed from Coby," Senior Product Manager Michael Paladino said in a written statement. "Like any other internet device with an open platform, a wide range of content is available which may require parental oversight. Coby is always looking for ways to improve our offerings."

Managers at the store where the item was bought said there have been no other reports of problems with the tablet computers.
