Dual core Kogan Agora tablet price announced, launched with Jelly Bean

Kogan Agora Tablet

Two new dual core Agora tablets by Kogan have surfaced through the Australian manufacturer cum retailer and the devices are available for purchase at just $119 which is the starting price. The newly announced slates will come in two flavors, one with an 8-inch display and the other bearing a 9.7-inch screen, both featuring the Jelly Bean platform to sweeten the deal.

The Mini which goes by the model number KATBL08A16E, measures 20 x 15.4 x 1 in centimeters and it weighs not more than 380 grams. The front is fitted with a 1024 x 768p HD 8-inch capacitive touch display and a 0.3MP webcam for video calling. Powering up this piece of hardware is a 4300mAh Li-ion battery.

10-inch Listing

The 10-inch KATBL10A08E model isn’t technically that wide, as pointed out earlier. Well, the manufacturer has exaggerated the 9.7-inch display’s size a bit. The TFT IPS LCD screen is capable of delivering a 10-point capacitive touch input and a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels as well as a 132ppi density. Unlike the aforementioned slate, this one packs in a rear-facing 2MP camera as well, for recording videos and capturing images. An 8000mAh Li-ion battery gets things up and running.

The 2 slates have various components in common. Storage needs are taken care of by 8GB or 16GB of integrated memory and a microSD card slot. Doing the heavy lifting from within is a 1.6GHz dual core ARM Cortex A9 CPU that’s accompanied by 1GB of RAM and a quad core Mali 400 GPU. Other similarities shared by the slates include connectivity features such as Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and MiniHDMI.
