Kogan unveils LivePrice pricing system

Dynamic pricing structure allows customers to purchase early for discount prices

At a London press conference broadcast over the Internet, Ruslan Kogan — founder of cut-price technology retailer Kogan Technologies — has announced the launch of the company’s 'LivePrice' incremental pricing scheme, which allows customers to purchase a product for a lower price earlier in its production cycle.

Kogan showed the example of a Kogan Elite 32in LED television on the company’s recently launched Kogan.co.uk Web site. With the manufacturing process of this product just beginning, the television’s listed LivePrice during the presentation was £330 — a saving of £69 over the product’s regular price of £399. The projected shipping date for the TV is 31 January; a wait of two months for any customers purchasing at the lowest possible LivePrice.

Kogan said the LivePrice system empowers customers: “The earlier you purchase, the more you’ll be rewarded.” The price on each LivePrice product on the Kogan Web site slowly rises, with an increase of approximately two pence on the 32in LED television’s price in an hour.

The LivePrice scheme is currently only available for four products on the Kogan UK Web site. A spokesperson for the company said the system would be implemented in Australia soon, with a launch projected for after Christmas.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
