Kogan cancels the Agora

Written by test

For now...

As excited people were about the Android powered Agora from Kogan Technologies in Australia, it now seems like they'll be equally disappointed, as the company has gone and put the handset on hold, indefinitely.

The reason behind this is said to be that the 320x240 display is too low resolution for apps that are planned for the Android platform and as such, Kogan doesn't want to release a device that won't work with upcoming Android applications.

In a blog post on the company website, Kogan claims that the handset had entered manufacturing and was almost ready to start shipping, but Kogan decided to pull the plug and said "I cannot disappoint you by supplying a product that I am aware will shortly have significant limitations".

For those that have placed pre-orders on the Agora, Kogan is set to issue re-funds within the next seven days. Although it's hard to tell how good the Agora would've been, it's still a shame that it didn't make it further than this. Kogan is promising a new Android powered Agora in the future, but it's anyone's guess when, what it'll cost and what features will have been changed.
