Kogan, an Australian consumer electronics manufacturer, has launched a tablet that is reported to be the cheapest in its category.
The tablet comes in the size of 10-inches display with a resolution of 1024 x 768 and runs on the latest version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system. It has a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor, 1GB of RAM and has two 2MP front and rear cameras. It has a USB and microSD port to facilitate data transfer.

“For a multi-touch screen like this with these features and Android’s Ice Cream Sandwich, the new Kogan Agora 10 is the cheapest, by a long shot,” he added.
“There were lots of really cheap tablets on the market, (but) some don’t have a capacitive touchscreen, often have really old CPUs, smaller screens, and they definitely don’t have Android 4.0.”
This tablet is available at the price of $179 for 8GB and $199 for 16GB version. It would be launched by June 25.
According to Get Price, Price Comparison site of Australia, many of the 8GB, 10-inch tablets are available in the price range of $219 to $430.
