CES is almost over, but it’s not quite over yet and this morning sees Ruslan Kogan announcing some new products for his online retail store, like a sub-$1000 4K UHD TV, but more importantly to us a new Android tablet, namely a 7″ Agora Tablet which is 3G capable.
The Agora HD Mini 3G is a new step for Kogan with 3G connectivity being included in their tablet line for the first time – compatible with all three Australian carriers networks – and as an addition, they’ve used an aluminium backplate on the tablet to add a more premium feel to the previously all plastic Agora line.
The specs on the tablet are pretty decent as well, with a 7.85″ IPS Display with a 1024×768 resolution up front, it has a 1.2GHz Quad-Core MediaTek CPU and PowerVR GPU paired with 1GB of RAM powering it. The tablet comes with 16GB of onboard storage as well as a microSD card slot to expand storage. The tablet comes with dual cameras – 8MP Rear/5MP Front – and connectivity wise supports WiFi 802.11 b/g/n as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS.
Software wise, the Kogan Agora HD Mini 3G Tablet comes with Android 4.2 and comes with the Google Play store installed which gives you access to the more than 1 million Apps available. There’s no indication of whether updates to the OS are incoming but we’ll be watching. Currently on Pre-Sale at the moment for $199 + delivery($19), the tablet ships out on March 6th, we’re in the process of trying to procure a review unit right now.
