Agora tablet can now be pre-ordered, due to ship on June 25 in Australia
Australian hardware maker Kogan has introduced a new budget tablet, the 10-inch Agora. Kogan makes low-priced portable electronics such as netbooks and tablets, powered either by Linux or Android. This latest tablet has Android 4.0 onboard, displaying the interface on its 10-inch, 1024x768 touchscreen.
Other specs include a two-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor, along with 1GB of RAM. The 8GB of built-in storage is supplemented by a microSD memory card slot, though a 16GB model (for $200) is also available.
Unlike most other Android tablets, the Agora includes a USB 2.0 port and HDMI output as well. The tablet is said to begin shipping on June 25 only in Australia, priced at $179 AUD (about $176).
