Kogan to spark tablet war with new devices
Kogan’s new Agora tablets, which come with 4GB memory, are powered by a 1Ghz Cortex A8 processor and are running the older Android 2.3 operating system.
There is built-in wi-fi to easily connect to the internet while the media player makes it possible to watch your movies, listen to music and browse your photos.
The device supports HDMI out so users can watch their content on a larger screen as well.
Customers can also access the Android Market to download apps to use on the device.
“There’s a lot of hype around tablets and the so-called post-PC era of consumer electronics. It’s difficult to leave your house these days without seeing someone using a tablet,” says company CEO Ruslan Kogan
“But, a lot of people are still concerned about the expense of the tablets on the market, and can’t justify spending up to $1000 on an entertainment device.
“We’re now entering the tablet wars in a concerted way and ensuring that we have the best value option.”
The Kogan Agora tablets are priced at $149 for the 8-inch model using Kogan’s Live Price system while the 10-inch model will cost $189.
