The Kogan Agora 10-inch is one of two new Android tablets.

Kogan has today unveiled two new budget, dual-core Android tablets that run the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Google's Android operating system.

The Australian manufacturer and online retailer will sell the Agora Mini 8 and Agora 10in tablets from today, with prices starting at $119 and $179, respectively.

The new Agora-branded tablets come with dual core processors and are available in 8GB and 16GB variants.

The devices feature capacitive touchscreens with a resolution of 1024x768, come with a mini-HDMI port, have a microSD card slot to expand the built-in memory, and include a full-sized USB port.

The Agora Mini 8 has a front-facing VGA camera but no rear-facing camera while the larger 10in model comes with a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Kogan's founder and CEO, Ruslan Kogan, said customer feedback from previous Android tablets indicated the devices could have used a speed boost.

"People told us they thought the design was great, loved the price, but that they could’ve been just that bit snappier," he said. "We’ve been able to keep a slim, lightweight, design and retail all the features people want in tablets."

The new Agora tablets have 4300mAh and 8000mAh batteries, respectively. Both include 1GB of RAM and a 1.6GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

Both Agora Android tablets are available to order now with immediate shipping.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
