The Agora was a very nice looking Android phone set to be released in Australia and manufactured by Kogan, apparently will be no more.  According to Ruslan Kogan, the company founder, the Agora has been “delayed indefinitely”.  Kogan has been forced to repay early buyers.  The reason for the heartbreak?  According to Mr. K, “future interoperability issues”.  Apparently the Agora was in a fairly advanced stage of development as the they had already finished production and that they were “within days of shipping the product”.  Talk about a bummer.   There is some tunnel light to look forward to as Android is set to really boom this year, so I’m sure this won’t be the only Android phone to set foot in Australia.
