Kogan to launch LED TVs this year

Plans to expand operations to the UK and the US

At a press event in Sydney today, Australian company Kogan revealed plans to release 19in and 22in LED TVs within the next two months.

Kogan has also refreshed several of its existing products and launched a number of new products, including a Wi-Fi-enabled Internet and digital radio combination and a wireless-enabled 8in digital photo frame that can interface with social networking and photo-sharing Web sites.

CEO Ruslan Kogan said that OLED displays and Internet connectivity were the next big innovations in consumer electronics, and they will be introduced into several of Kogan's existing product ranges in the future.

When questioned regarding the continuing development of the Google Android-based Agora smartphone, Kogan said a new model with design similarities to the HTC Magic is ready and awaiting final approval.

Kogan also revealed plans to expand operations to the United States within two months and the UK in 2009. The company currently only operates in Australia and New Zealand.

According to Kogan, final negotiations are in process for warehousing in Kentucky, and once finalised the company will begin to sell its Pro range of LCD TVs in the US, before making its entire range of products available.

Kogan said local customers will feel the benefits of international expansion, with the company's increased buying power allowing it to decrease its prices.

Kogan attributed his company's growth to consumer interest in better value products. "Business has more than doubled in the last year," said Kogan. "People are becoming smarter than ever in how they shop."

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.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
