If you’re keen to jump on the Google TV bandwagon but refuse to stump up the cash, Kogan’s latest 3D LED TV could be worth a look. The 42-inch Agora Smart 3D LED TV runs on the latest version of Android and is currently selling for an introductory “pre-sale” price of $449. Here’s a peek at the specs.
Our report earlier this week about how Kogan Mobile is enforcing its acceptable usage policy triggered a wave of mainstream media coverage and lots of complaints from angry customers. However, it doesn’t seem to have stopped people signing up for the service.
With the offer of unlimited Australians calls and texts and 6GB of data on a Telstra network for $29 a month, Kogan Mobile has been a popular prepaid choice since its launch last December. But like most unlimited plans, the company’s acceptable usage policy (AUP) allows it to ditch customers whose usage is deemed “unreasonable”, and it seems Kogan Mobile is actively pursuing that policy and getting rid of some high-volume users.
Credit Suisse regularly compares pricing for selected consumer electronics at large Australian retailers. Its most recent comparison unsurprisingly pegs Harvey Norman as the most expensive retailer and notes that online retailer Kogan undercuts all its bricks-and-mortar rivals. Perhaps a little more surprisingly, it pitches Dick Smith as slightly cheaper than JB Hi-Fi.
Online retailer Kogan has been trying to launch an Android phone since 2008. It has finally happened, and the specifications for the new Agora Android phone look quite impressive: a 5-inch screen, a dual-core Cortex A9 processor and a dual-SIM slot (handy for travellers). At $149 (plus shipping), it’s also one of the cheaper Android 4.0.4 devices on the market.
