Kogan releases sub-$200 Android tablet with 3G

Undercuts Apple iPad Mini and Google Nexus 7 on price.

Online retailer Kogan has released the Agora HD Mini, a 7.85in Android tablet that retails for less than $200.

The Agora HD Mini features noteworthy hardware without the discriminatory price-tag. Its 1024x768 screen will support HD multimedia — ideal for users interested in watching videos on the go — while it features innards that are just as impressive.

Powering the tablet is a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A welcomed perk is the option to expand its storage by another 32GB through a microSD memory card.

Like most tablets in the Agora HD Mini’s price range, it supports Wi-Fi connectivity. However, it impressively goes one step further by adding compatibility with 3G networks. This means users aren’t shackled by Wi-Fi’s limited range when they want to surf the Web.

Another standout inclusion is a 5MP front-facing camera. It also has an 8MP rear camera which can be used to snap photos.

Holding the Agora HD Mini tablet back is its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. Although a capable OS with strong application support, its age could result in fewer software updates.

Company founder and chief executive, Ruslan Kogan, said in a statement that powerful, yet small tablets are disrupting the industry. “Our Agora range of tablets and smartphones have been popular since day one, because we’re able to cram in the features people want, at a better price than the big name brands.”

The Agora HD Mini tablet is available from Kogan today for $199.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
