Kogan, $199 kogan.com.au
★★★ For the price of a pair of running shoes, you can now get a tablet computer. Kogan undercuts most of its rivals with its Agora tablet, a 10-inch creation that is remarkably slim and a big step up from cheap tablets of recent years (remember the T-Touch Tab?). Unlike those models, this tablet has a capactive screen with IPS technology for
clearer viewing on an angle, as well as Google
Android Ice Cream Sandwich software, and so many ports they had to
be labelled to avoid confusion. But this tablet is for newcomers only. The screen’s muddy and displays fingerprints like no other, its 3-megapixel camera is disappointing, it’s a tad buggy and its construction is far from flawless. The Agora could
be a good lowcommitment tablet.
