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.
