Just yesterday, we brought you news that Karbonn had brought a 7-inch Android Jelly Bean tablet to market at a Nexus-bothering $125. That’s all well and good, but what if you’re still not convinced be all this 7-inch display nonsense? You’ll be needing something bigger.
How about a 10-inch tab running Android 4.0, replete with expandable storage and a bevy of inputs for just £119? That’s exactly what Kogan Technologies has to offer.
Kogan, the Australian company run by controversial tech figure Ruslan Kogan, concerns itself with making tech that apes the premier manufacturers’ goods, but at a fraction of the cost. Which neatly explains the thinking behind the Agora 10-inch tablet.
While it may not run on Android 4.1, it more than makes up for it elsewhere, when you consider what you’re getting on a spec-to-cost ratio. That 10-inch multi-touch display sits in front of a 1GHz ARMv7 with 1Gb of RAM. Storage is 8 or 16GB, although that’s expandable via MicroSD.
On top of that there’s a pair of cameras (2MP rear and 0.3MP front-facing), HDMI output and a battery that should kick out up to 8 hours of use. Hardly the pinnacle of Android tab specs, sure, but it’s served up in a tidy, Nexus 7 inspired casing and is now available to UK customers from £119. That’s a bargain.
