Kogan has announced the 7in Agora Android tablet, which is now available for the amazingly low price of £89.06. The 7in tablet has a capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 480, which supports 720p video playback. The Agora is powered by a 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 processor and comes with 512MB of DDR2 RAM but a lowly 4GB of storage. However the tablet comes with a microSD card slot to boost your storage up to 32GB. The Agora comes with a front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam, a mini HDMI port, a USB port and a headphone jack. The Agora weighs just 390g with dimensions measuring 192 x 121 x 12mm.

There are a few cheap android 7" tablets floating about. Usually they have resistive screens, low memory and a poor processor. This seems to tick all the boxes that it could be expected to tick for £89+postage

Brilliant, thanks so much! ill look forward to its release!

Good find

Bargain. The price is around a 1/4 what it was 12 months ago. The fall off in prices of the generic tablet will abate soon and I believe this deal heralds a new low price.

7-inch cheap tablet was too good to be true

Maverick Australian etailer Kogan has come under fire for altering the specifications of the firm's new Agora 7" budget tablet after it went on sale.

Kogan announced the "world's best value tablet" with the Agora 7-inch Android tablet offering surprising specifications for just £90 or $149 depending on the US or Australia Kogan portal.

The Wi-Fi only Android 2.2-powered tablet was listed as a 1GHz Cortex A8 CPU, 4GB of storage, HDMI port, Bluetooth and a 1024 x 600 capacitive touch screen which is an astonishing buy for that price.

As customers rushed to place orders the web page was updated with the device now listed as a 800 x 480 resolution screen and no Bluetooth. A number of customers immediately got in contact and cancelled their pre-orders.

Kogan lists rebadged Chinese-manufactured products well in advance of their actual shipping date with a curious pricing scheme called Live Price that ticks upwards as the release date approaches. At time of writing the tablet was still listed at £89 in the UK with the Australian price jumping to $155 and down to $147 in a matter of minutes.

They have a UK operation. There will be no further charges and the resolution is fine for a 7inch screen, especially one at £89. Everyone entitled to their own opinion though.
paultheone#18

The link above has a resistive touch screen. This deal is for capacitive.
No competition there :)
