Kogan Goes Jelly Bean On Android Tablets

Kogan has updated its bargain-price Android tablet range, introducing new 8-inch and 10-inch models both running Android Jelly Bean. Pricing starts at $119 for the most basic version and they're on sale right now.

$119 gets you the 8GB 8-inch model; for an additional $10, you can have 16GB memory. The 8GB 10-inch model (actually a 9.7-inch screen) is $179, while the 16GB version in that size is $199. The previous Android models from Kogan sold healthily; that was in a pre-Nexus 7 universe, but I still imagine there'll be something of a run on them. Tempted? Rather have something with beefier specs? Tell us in the comments.



    Was hoping there would have been some development on the game console released last Oct. The psp vita lookalike,

    Got the 8" 8GB model, cheap, flimsy, dirt stuck under screen, horrible overheating, slow!!
    Support team took 2 weeks to answer back, and are making me wait another 10 days for a refund...
    Take my advice and stay away!

      One of my clients got a 10 inch Kogan tablet this week. Took 2 days to deliver it!!! How do they ship from Hong Kong in 48 hours?

      It's no galaxy tab or transformer prime but for under $200 its pretty damn good. The plastic edge seems a bit flimsy and the back is a bit too glossy for my liking but it works fine and i didn't notice any overheating issues.

      If you are the kind of person who reads lifehacker or gizmodo then chances are you may not be happy with a kogan tablet, but for someone who just wants to browse the web, read email and play angry birds the kogan seems like a good buy to me

    If I were to buy one of these, do I have to wait for Kogan (or their manufacturer/supplier) to provide future updates, or can I get them and install them myself from google? I'm not afraid of rooting, but I'm an android noob so I don't even know if rooting is possible on a Kogan tablet

      I have the same question. There is no Check for Updates in Settings.

    Here's an even more impressive new tablet -- the Quad Core - Novo 7 Venus which launched last week -- with one reseller - a site called TabletSprint offering this new model for $149 --

    The Novo 7 Venus is made by Ainol Electronics, which is noted for winning Runner-Up for
    "Best Tablet of the Year" at the 2012 international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and this new model compares to the Nexus 7 tablet but for considerably less - matching key features, including a Quad Core processor, a 7" high resolution multi-touch 1280x800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front camera, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled -- while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn't - including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, an HDMI 1080p port to download and watch movies directly from a tablet on a large screen TV and also project & play video games on to a big screen; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G Wireless connection through its USB port with a 3G/4G USB adapter.

    TabletSprint also includes $25 in Bonus Apps including several popular 3D Games and a Microsoft Office Suite program. Shipping internationally to Australia is $35, but it stlll makes a great deal with the budget price of this full-featured tablet.
