Kogan releases sub-$200 Android tablet with 3G

Undercuts Apple iPad Mini and Google Nexus 7 on price.

Online retailer Kogan has released the Agora HD Mini, a 7.85in Android tablet that retails for less than $200.

The Agora HD Mini features noteworthy hardware without the discriminatory price-tag. Its 1024x768 screen will support HD multimedia — ideal for users interested in watching videos on the go — while it features innards that are just as impressive.

Powering the tablet is a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A welcomed perk is the option to expand its storage by another 32GB through a microSD memory card.

Like most tablets in the Agora HD Mini’s price range, it supports Wi-Fi connectivity. However, it impressively goes one step further by adding compatibility with 3G networks. This means users aren’t shackled by Wi-Fi’s limited range when they want to surf the Web.

Another standout inclusion is a 5MP front-facing camera. It also has an 8MP rear camera which can be used to snap photos.

Holding the Agora HD Mini tablet back is its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. Although a capable OS with strong application support, its age could result in fewer software updates.

Company founder and chief executive, Ruslan Kogan, said in a statement that powerful, yet small tablets are disrupting the industry. “Our Agora range of tablets and smartphones have been popular since day one, because we’re able to cram in the features people want, at a better price than the big name brands.”

The Agora HD Mini tablet is available from Kogan today for $199.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

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.
