The new seven-inch unit features a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, capacitive touchscreen with 800×480-pixel resolution and Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system.
Full specs are below.
While the Agora tablet hasn’t completed manufacture as of time of writing, the company is offering consumers a “get in early” price under its LivePrice scheme – the sooner you get in, the cheaper it is. At time of writing, the price was $148 although it is slated to have an eventual retail price of $189.
While eBay is flooded with budget seven-inch Android tablets now featuring Google’s Froyo operating system, the potential for the Agora 7 to be among the better models is high, given its 1GHz processor and capacitive-touchscreen LCD panel. (The majority of cheap tablets feature a resistive touchpanel).
The Agora 7 supports USB and HDMI output however, it appears the CPU is only fast enough to handle 720p (1280×720-pixel) HD video playback. According to Kogan’s website, the first production run of the tablet sold out two days ago. No details have been announced about when the second run will go into production.
