Kogan hits 'net-on-TV', Android, Ubuntu markets all at once
Tablet price smackdown
Serial stirrer Ruslan Kogan has decided that Gerry Harvey is too boring a target, and wants to stick his thumbs in Steve Jobs' eye instead. To that end, the latest release list from the upstart vendor includes a 7" Android tablet starting at $139 (£99).
The latest Kogan Technologies lineup also includes an internet-on-TV service based on Android, along with a range of cut-price mini-laptops running Windows or Ubuntu.
The 12" laptops come with or without keyboard (Agora Pro at $319/£219, or the base model at $299/£229). Note that Kogan's new "live pricing" on its ecommerce site means the price at a given moment might vary from the prices given here.
The laptops come pre-configured with the user’s choice of Windows or Ubuntu.
If the Kogan website isn't just playing the "buy now or pay more" game, these introductory prices are set to rise at some indeterminate point in the future.
Finally, Kogan is also spreading the Android love with a cheap internet-TV device. The Agora Internet TV Portal gives users browsing and streaming to their TVs, with either an optical remote or optional keyboard. The Internet TV box ships at $149 (£99), with the keyboard offered at $39 (£25). ®
There's always room for an AlanMartinSugarTRADing company.
You mean where it says "Samsung Cortex A8"? Still says it. Dram? Same as ipad 2, twice that of ipad 1.. Seems pretty reasonable to me, Sure it's not an ipad, or an Xoom, but it's 4-5-6 times cheaper, but is it 4-5-6 times worse? No
Are Celeron M processor's too...not even atoms inside them.
I love Kogan's gear, but I have never liked his idea for laptops and netbooks, they are a good example of "you get what you pay for".
If they had atoms in them, then I would consider picking one up, but not with a Celeron.
