We weep as the Kogan Agora faces an uncertain future

Remember the Kogan Agora? Of course you do. The ultra-cheap Android-powered phone out of the Land Down Under hit us pretty hard in our ol’ sympathy organ (the heart, you perv) with its 624MHz processor, aGPS, Wi-Fi and 2.0 megapixel camera all for under $300 USD. Pre-orders started a few weeks ago with a ship date of January 29, but now it looks like the little engine that could might not be able to make it up that cruel, steep hill known as the world marketplace – for the time being at least. According to a blog post by founder Ruslan Kogan, the scrappy little Agora and Agora Pro have been delayed until further notice, with one of the reasons being that its low-resolution screen won’t be able properly display to the variety of high resolution applications coming to market. Refunds will of course be given to anyone who pre-ordered, but c’mon, Kogan. We know you started production so can’t you send just one our way?
