Kogan Enters The Low-End Android Tablet Space

Given founder Ruslan Kogan’s enthusiasm for all things Android, it’s surprising that it has taken this long for Kogan to finally enter the Android tablet market. Its new Agora 7″ Tablet PC looks pretty much like a stock-standard Chinese clone tablet, running Android 2.2 and offering a capacitive-touch interface, and it’s selling for a good but not truly remarkable price.Right now, Kogan is selling the tablet for around $139 through its LivePrice system. That is well below the price of similar offerings from (for example) Optus and Telstra. (The official “list price is $189.)

With that said, the first LivePrice batch isn’t due to ship until May 27. If you don’t fancy waiting that long, it’s not hard to hunt down a similarly-configured no-name tablet for the same kind of price (a quick search shows a similar deal at Techrific for starters, albeit on a 1.6 Android release.)
