Kogan delays Android-powered Agora and Agora Pro

Kogan Agora Pro

Kogan has announced that it is indefinitely delaying its Kogan Agora and Agora Pro mobile phones. The delay is being attributed to potential future interoperability issues. Kogan goes on to indicate that the screen size and resolution may be the problem, indicating that developers are working on applications that require a higher resolution than the Kogan was to have offered.

I am sorry for this delay, but in the interest of doing things right by the Kogan brand promise, and you, the customers, I cannot disappoint you by supplying a product that I am aware will shortly have significant limitations.

Back in December, Kogan had promised that it would be the first to release a Google phone in Australia. It originally promised to have it out before Christmas but was later forced to push the promised delivery date to end of January. The Agora had reached a very late stage of development and was close to shipping when the decision to delay the launch was taken.

Kogan has promised that the Agora will be redesigned to address the current limitations. In the meantime, pre-orders will be refunded within the next seven days.
