Kogan's 10in Agora tablet: currently sold out.

Cut-price Agora Android tablets sold by Australian online retailer Kogan have sold out in less than four days, the company has revealed.

Earlier this week, the company announced two budget Android tablets, both running the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google's Android operating system. The Agora 10in tablets come in 8GB and 16GB models and are priced at $179 and $199, respectively.

A Kogan spokesperson confirmed that initial stocks of the Android tablets sold out around midday yesterday. The company has confirmed another production run is scheduled shortly, but refused to specify a date or time period.

"Kogan is working on another production run right now, and it will be available for sale shortly," the spokesperson said.

Customers who pre-ordered and Agora tablet in the initial first batch are likely to receive the device in the last week of June.

Both Agora tablets feature a 10in capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1024x768, come with a HDMI port for connecting the device to a high definition television and have a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The sell out comes on the back of increased competition in the cut-price Android tablet market, with rival vendors pushing products that undercut the Apple's market leading but higher priced iPad.

German supermarket chain Aldi will next week begin selling a 9.7in Android tablet running Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich software for just $249. The device has very similar specifications to both Kogan Agora models.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
