Kogan tablet offers iPad-like features for £119

Kogan has priced its new tablet, the Agora 10in, very keenly at £119 plus delivery and has almost matched Apple's iPad feature for feature with a few more thrown in.

The device is powered by a single core Cortex A8 processor clocked at 1GHz (like the original iPad) with 1GB of RAM (like the new iPad), a 9.7in 1,024 x 768 pixels IPS capacitive display (like the iPad 2), 8GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), an 8,000mAh battery, a mini HDMI port, a rear 2-megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA one, Bluetooth, a micro-USB port, Wi-Fi and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

At 545g, it is almost as light as the Wi-Fi-only Apple tablet but offers more in terms of functionality. And given that it offers ICS without any proprietary user interface attached to it (like Samsung's TouchWiz UI), one can be fairly certain that it will perform adequately. And with a microSD card slot, one can up the onboard capacity to 40GB for around a tenner. The Kogan Agora, however, is unlikely to ever get Jelly Bean.
