Kogan’s New, Cheap 7.85-Inch Tablet Is No Slouch

Kogan’s New, Cheap 7.85-Inch Tablet Is No Slouch

Need a new, cheap tablet in a pinch? Kogan’s got you sorted with this 7.85-inch Android tablet for $199.

Announced at CES this morning, the tablet is packing a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (expandable to another 32GB via a microSD card) and a 4500mAh battery.

Rather than stick with an all-plastic construction, the back of the device is all aluminium, which makes the tablet feel better all round despite adding a bit of extra weight.

The new Kogan tablet is also the first in the Agora line-up to include a 3G SIM slot. Sadly, Kogan won’t be packing SIM cards in with purchase. We all know how that ended up last time.

When asked about the aftermath of Kogan Mobile, Ruslan told us this morning that he wouldn’t attempt a carrier again until the company could build towers of its own: something he admits will be “a long way off”. Sad face.

The new Agora Mini sells for $199 on Kogan’s website. Shipping kicks off from early-March.
