Kogan launches KEVIN37: a $900 LCD television

Kogan's new 37in LCD television will ship with a free T-shirt that imitates the KEVIN07 shirts worn by Kevin Rudd's supporters — and has a price that's perfect for beneficiaries of the Government's economic stimulus package.

Budget manufacturer and retailer Kogan today announced the KEVIN37, a 37in LCD television that will cost $900 — the same amount earmarked for individual tax-payers who earn $80,000 or less in the Federal Government's economic stimulus package.

Set for release in April, the KEVIN37 will be delivered to customers at the same time as they are receiving the $900 handout. The televisions will also ship with a free promotional T-shirt that pays homage to the 'KEVIN07' T-shirts worn by supporters of the then-prime ministerial candidate Kevin Rudd in 2007's federal election.

Company founder Ruslan Kogan said that the product was an example of his company making consumer electronics affordable for all Australians. “While big name technology vendors are raising prices, we’re introducing new products at prices that undercut the market significantly. Many Australians have been waiting for an opportunity like this to bring their living rooms into the digital age with a big screen high-definition set. The KEVIN37 in conjunction with the tax bonus is a great combination for Australians looking for an affordable home entertainment solution."

The government's economic stimulus package is meant to be spent on local products and services to boost economic growth. Kogan is an Australian-owned and operated business, and the company says that its profits are reinvested in the Australian economy.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
