Kogan Introduces Cheap Android Tablet the Agora

Australian consumer electronics-maker Kogan has introduced a new budget Android ICS tablet, which it claims to the cheapest of its kind. The Agora 10-inch tablet is available for a price of $179 and runs the latest version of Googles Android OS: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

A 16GB version comes with a price-tag of $199. Most of the 10-inch tablets with 8GB capacity usually come for a price of around $219 to $430.

According to Kogan founder Ruslan Kogan, although there are many cheap tablets in the market, most have not-so-powerful CPUs, small screens and no Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This makes the Kogan Agora 10 the cheapest tablet of its category.

The Agora tablet is powered by a 1.2GHz processor along with 1G RAM and sports two cameras of 2MP each on the front and back. The Agora tablet also includes a USB and a microSD port which facilitates data transfer. This gives it a significant advantage over the iPad, which does not have any such facilities.

The company did not do much tweaking in the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, although it is an open source software. The companys primary motive was cost. Kogan also added that some of the problems and drawbacks of their previous products had also been rectified.
