Kogan Agora is the world's second Android phone available

For you who have been waiting to get your hands-on G1 Android phone, but live nowhere near T-Mobile wireless coverage area, then your dream may come true. It's not the T-Mobile's G1, but it's Agora, the second Android phone available that's made by the Australian-based company Kogan.

Kogan has started to take pre-order of Agora line-up, which there are two version: Agora at AU$299 & the Agora Pro at AU$399. Kogan promised to deliver the order on January 29th, 2009. Here's a quick sneak peek at Agora Pro's specs:
  • Quad-band GSM up to HSDPA
  • 624MHz processor
  • 256MB on board memory
  • 128Mb flash memory
  • 2.5" QVGA screen (320x240 pixels)
  • microSD slot
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • WiFi b/g
  • 2MP camera
  • GPS navigation capability with Google Maps
  • Headphone jack
  • 130gr weight
  • 1300 mAh Lithium-ion battery

If you're wondering the difference between the usual Agora and the Pro, it is only for the WiFi and camera. Otherwise, both have the same exact specs. And looks like the Agora line-up is not locked to any wireless carrier, this could seriously put T-Mobile's G1 into a really tight spot.
