It was hinted earlier on that Kogan were going to finally enter the phone game with their own Android powered Agora handset and now that is a reality. Starting today you can pre-order the 5-inch Kogan Agora smartphone from Kogan with shipping to begin next month.
Taking it’s industrial design cues from Samsung’s Galaxy Note, the Agora packs a relatively low to mid-range kinda punch but with some nice exceptions with it’s 1GHz Dual-Core Cortex-A9 processor, 512MB RAM, 2000mAh battery, 5-inch 800×480 screen, 5MP camera, Dual Sim (one 2G and the other is 3G) and it’s 4GB of onboard storage with microSD expansion of up to
64GB 32GB, all running on top of Android 4.0.4 ICS, the thing that makes up for all this…. it’s price, $149 unlocked and outright. Yep $149!!!! Killer huh?
So anyway head on over to the Kogan site and pre-order this little beast if you’re interested in what looks to be a decent handset at a awesome price and hit up Engadget’s post for all the pics and a hands on.
Editor’s Note: Does anyone remember when Kogan first entered the mobile phone arena, promising to bring a sub $200 Android phone to market at the end of 2008? It turned out to be vapourware, but my how the times have changed. -Ed.
