Kogan Agora Android Phone Delayed, Cancelled Maybe?
Kogan Agora seemed one of the few promising Android phones ready to be launched in 2009, when it first surfaced on the web, more than a month ago. It had everything, a 624 MHz CPU, aGPS, WiFi and a 2 megapixel camera plus a hot under $300 price tag. Although pre-orders have already started a couple of weeks ago, now it turns out that the handset will be delayed indefinitely.
Founder Ruslan Kogan announced the problem through a blog post and mentioned that Agora and Agora Pro will be arriving later than scheduled, because of a display issue. It seems that the low-res screen won’t be able to display the high resolution Android apps that will be arriving later this year…
All of you who pre-ordered the Kogan handsets will receive a refund, but this is a still a bad move for the company’s reputation…
