Kogan unveils low-price 8in and 10in Tablets
20 October 2011
Kogan has launched its new Agora 8in Tablet (starting at £119) and Agora 10in Tablet (starting at £149), both powered by Android. Both models have bright, 4:3 ratio capacitive touchscreens, revamped lightweight designs, a wealth of input and output options, and will ship direct to customers with a bundled protective pouch. Founder and CEO, Ruslan Kogan, said the company’s ability to design, create, and deliver the tablets meant that it could cut out the middleman, and achieve these low prices.
“There’s a lot of hype around tablets and the so-called post-PC era of consumer electronics. It’s difficult to leave your house these days without seeing someone using a tablet," says Kogan. “But, a lot of people are still concerned about the expense of the tablets on the market, and can’t justify spending up to $1000 on an entertainment device.
“We’re now entering the tablet wars in a concerted way and ensuring that we have the best value option. The Kogan Agora 7in Tablet we launched earlier in the year was a roaring success, selling out multiple production runs within days. But we have had a lot of constructive feedback over the past few months in the Kogan community that have resulted in direct changes to the new range.
“As a result, we know we’re creating an device that will be loved by anyone wanting to own their own tablet without feeling guilty for forking out an arm and a leg," Kogan said, adding: "It is true. The Kogan Agora range of tablets does have a screen and a battery. Our tablets also happen to look like a tablet. I hope this does not aggravate Apple and cause further legal proceedings."
The range is available today using the LivePrice system:
