Kogan launches new Android low-cost tablets
- 21 February, 2013 09:26
The Kogan Agora 10-inch is one of two new Android tablets.
Kogan has today unveiled two new budget, dual-core Android tablets that run the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Google's Android operating system.
The new Agora-branded tablets come with dual core processors and are available in 8GB and 16GB variants.
The devices feature capacitive touchscreens with a resolution of 1024x768, come with a mini-HDMI port, have a microSD card slot to expand the built-in memory, and include a full-sized USB port.
The Agora Mini 8 has a front-facing VGA camera but no rear-facing camera while the larger 10in model comes with a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera.
Kogan's founder and CEO, Ruslan Kogan, said customer feedback from previous Android tablets indicated the devices could have used a speed boost.
"People told us they thought the design was great, loved the price, but that they could’ve been just that bit snappier," he said. "We’ve been able to keep a slim, lightweight, design and retail all the features people want in tablets."
The new Agora tablets have 4300mAh and 8000mAh batteries, respectively. Both include 1GB of RAM and a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor.
Both Agora Android tablets are available to order now with immediate shipping.

Implementing A Security Analytics Architecture
According to the 2012 Verizon Data Breach Investigations report, 99% of breaches led to data compromise within “days” or less, whereas 85% of breaches took “weeks” or more to discover. This presents a significant challenge to security teams as it grants attackers extended periods of time within a victim’s environment. More “free time” leads to more stolen data and more digital damage. Principally, this is because today’s security measures aren’t designed to counter today’s more advanced threats. Read on.
