The first official Google Android phone was the HTC Dream G1, a handset which became known as the T-Mobile G1. Now we we’re looking to a firm called Kogan for the next official Android phone.
Who the heck is Kogan? Have no idea really. While we figure that out, what you see in the pic here is the Kogan Agora Pro, the next major Google Android smartphone. As you can see, this phone borrows its look from the sleek Blackjack line, and has a whole different design approach than the G1 did. This style may be more suitable for the general businessman.
The Kogan Agora Pro gets the full compliment of Android goodies, include Google Search, Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Talk, and Google Calendar. Other specs: a 2.5-inch QVGA flat touchscreen display, backlit QWERTY keyboard, GPS navigation, Blueooth 2.0+EDR, Wi-Fi, a 2MP camera, music player, microSD slot, quad-band GSM, and tri-band UMTS/HSDPA.
The phone is slated to launch in Australia in late January, the Kogan Agora Pro will retail for $399AU (about on par with the Blackjack). For something a little cheaper, you can opt for the regular Kogan Agora for $299. The design and overall styling is the same, but the regular Agora removes Wi-Fi and GPS (3G is still there though). No word on when the Agora will make it past down under, but assuming it does well, no reason why it shouldn’t at some point.
