The boys at Engadget have just posted about this new Android-based phone.
The Agora (AU$299; US$192) and Agora Pro (AU$399; US$256) are available for pre-order as we speak, though neither one is scheduled to ship out until the end of January. As for specs, the Agora packs a 2.5-inch touchscreen (320 x 240), 3G networking, a backlit QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth 2.0 and a microSD card slot; the Pro adds in GPS, 2-megapixel camera and WiFi. So, with unsubsidized prices this low, are you willing to take a chance?
I have never heard of this company before but it is apparently a well-known, reputable company. If this really comes to market (sheesh! I’m so jaded!) it will be a welcome addition. Looks like a pretty darn good deal to me!
It’s actually nice to see that the next potential (there’s that untrusting side of me again!) Android phone could be in a Blackberry-esk design. At this price point though, it makes you wonder why the G1 from Google was so expensive!
