More androids unveiled – the Kogan Agora
This is the Kogan Agora, a Google Android-based smartphone. Kogan is an online-only company that gets its products custom-made in Chinese factories. That means they’re able to sell for rock-bottom prices. Before I tell you about that, though, let’s talk specs.
The Agora has a 320 x 240, 2.5″ touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, microSD card slot, and 3G. A ‘Pro’ model, also offered, adds Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 2-megapixel camera. Neither will blow the N97 out of the water, but when you factor in the price, you’ll see why they’re so special.
The Agora will sell for AU$299 (£130) and the Pro model for AU$399 (£175). That’s unlocked, and with no contract. For comparison, the N97 will cost £465 before it gets subsidised by contracts. At those prices, these are going to be fantastic entry-level smartphones, especially as they’re Android-powered, with all the joy that comes with that.
Both are available for pre-order now, with those orders arriving on Jan 29th 2009.
