Sub-$200 Kogan Agora Tablets, Gone In Days

If anyone was wondering whether demand existed for cheap tablets (and HP's Touchpad firesale failed to convince), you might like to know that Kogan has sold out of both its 8GB and 16GB Agora tablets, which launched just days ago on May 28.

A cursory glance of the tablets on the Kogan website shows a pair of very noticeable "Sold out" notices, in case you had doubts.

"Kogan is working on another production run right now, and it will be available for sale shortly," quotes ARN from a Kogan spokesperson. ARN goes on to mention that those who pre-ordered won't get their units until the end of June.

Did you decide to pick one up? If so, which model did you go for and what compelled your purchase besides the price?




    I bought the 8GB model... The 16GB model was sold out by the time I made my mind up about buying one... The extra 8GB doesn't really matter to me anyway, I will use this mostly for games, checking email, watching Youtube, and general internet use while I am chilling out around the house... Cannot wait to get my hands on it, have wanted a Tablet for ages!

    i bought an ipad for the kitchen, then realised i use it everywhere
    so i bought an 8gb kogan for the kitchen instead.

    plus XBMC using a tablet is way awesome.

    I ordered mine on the day they were released as I missed the previous 10" offering, and wasnt keen on the 7 or 8.. The ICS update is a nice bonus, but I intend to install MIUI v4 as I have on my Samsung Galaxy. Fixes many of the reported bugs on this device, most of which ICS has probably fixed. For what I want it for (XBMC remote, streaming movies/music, internet, reading, entertain the 2 year old etc) will be the best $179 I've spent I believe. Cant justify spending $400-$900 on an iPad or the likes, I'll save my coin for a Win8 tab.

    I missed out on one, when will they come back in stock?
