Kogan prices Samsung Galaxy S5 $129 below RRP

Makes announcement in error-ridden newsletter.

Many of the specs listed are incorrect: Kogan is offering an 8-core S5; the One (M8) has a 2.5GHz CPU and a rear 4MP Ultrapixel camera.

Two of the hottest smartphones this year have been priced by etailer Kogan, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8)

Kogan will sell the Samsung Galaxy S5 $129 below retail for $799.

Samsung’s recommended price for the Galaxy S5 is $929, but it appears Kogan can afford to drop the pricing of the Galaxy S5 by offering the overseas variant. The G900I is a Galaxy S5 with an Octa-core CPU, but as far as we can tell, this comes at the expense of 4G connectivity.

Kogan announced the availability of the Galaxy S5 in its suspiciously erroneous newsletter. The newsletter incorrectly claims Kogan is offering the quad-core Galaxy S5 — the model Samsung is releasing in Australia — for $799. Although Kogan is offering the quad-core model of the Galaxy S5, it is priced at $849.

The HTC One (M8) is priced less competitively by the etailer. Kogan is offering the smartphone for $829, which is below HTC’s recommended retail price of $899. The HTC One (M8) features a 2.5GHz CPU and a rear 4MP Ultrapixel camera, despite the newsletter stating otherwise.

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 will be available in stores in just a few days on 11 April. HTC’s flagship One (M8) has already been released.

Update, 10 Mar: Kogan has lowered the price of the 4G Samsung Galaxy.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.
