As usual during tech shows of all sorts we hear about companies we haven’t heard of before, revealing brand new products. Kogan is one such name that popped up at this year’s CES show in Las Vegas. And this is their product:

SONY DSC

This is a 3G tablet with a tri band modem inside and a price of just $180. The device packs a 7.85 inch 1024 x 768 display with a pretty strong backlight and it’s surrounded by a narrow bezel and chamfered edges. The ports are incorporated into the top of the slate and we also find a microSD on board, a microUSB and a microSIM card slot.

The device relies on a 1.2 GHz MTK MT8389 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, plus a 4500 mAh battery with an usage time of about 10 hours. The OS of choice here is Android 4.2.2 in an AOSP build, that’s free of bloatware. How’s this for an iPad Mini rival?

    Not totally unknown as I.get their updates every 30 mins or so. They are an Australian branding company that reportedly sells lower midrange to low high end products. Almost bought their Agora phablet last Summer, hesitated a few days and they were done, finished, unavailable.
