An unknown electronics maker Kogan has launched a 7-inch Android tablet called the Agora in the UK running Android 2.2 OS. The device is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512MB RAM and comes with 4GB internal storage.
The Agora tablet has a capacitive touchscreen with 800×480 resolution. It is driven by a 1GHz Samsung ARM Cortex A8 processor and 512MB of RAM. It has only 4GB of internal storage, but at that price you should be able to fork out for a microSD card to supplement the available data storage.
The tablet is a respectable 390g and 12.4mm thick. There is no rear facing camera but the Agora does have a front facing 1.3MP camera and a microphone for video calling. A miniUSB port is present along with a miniHDMI port and a headphone socket.
The tablet runs Android 2.2 and comes with WiFi connectivity and a G sensor. Kogan says that the device supports HD 720p playback and the gadget also comes with an HDMI cable.
The specifications are comparable to those of the Archos 70 Internet Tablet which sells for more than double the price of the Agora. Kogan’s tablet is also cheaper than other budget tablets that we are seeing appear, like the ones from Elonex that we saw earlier this week at the Gadget Show Live.
It is priced at AUD$189.
