Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2011

Kogan is launching a trio of new budget computing products in Australia: an Android tablet, an Ubuntu notebook, and a set-top-box that brings Android to your TV. I know, the tablet is just another in a sea of tablets, but the Agora model is just $140 (it will go up to $189). The tablet is expected to ship at the end of May with a 1 GHz Samsung processor, a 7 inch 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display, 512MB of RAM, and a 3600mAh battery. It runs Google Android 3.0.

The Internet TV Portal will retail between $149 and $199, allowing you to run Android apps on your TV. The set top box will come with a special remote control that features special Android buttons. You can expect the Internet TV Portal on May 27th.

Next up is the Kogan Agora laptop with a 1.2 GHz Intel Celeron SU2300 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. It features an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display. It is priced between $300 and $349.
