Now, I've never heard of Kogan, and I'm not particularly a Linux fan, but I thought I'd post this because that phone looks a MILLION times better than the G1!

Being that they're from Australia, theres a good chance we can use them here too!

Damn, value for money specs! Looks nice too.

Edit, would you buy it? knowing it is new and has no 'history' like the HTC or Samsung or Sony etc etc!

That would be one of my concerns. The quality of the hand set would be relativly unknown as they're new to the game by the looks of things.
It looks of high quality though. I mean, the G1 from HTC looks cheap and nasty, and they're meant to be good!

What I dont understand is why they have made the screen so small. In this day and age isnt it expected to have a big screen?

I may end up getting one though.. looks really good and It has a physical QWERTY keyboard which is what I want/need

Wow this phone looks like excellent value for money - especially the pro model. Mauricio do you think you could sweet talk them into sending over a review model for you?!

As an aside, I think some exciting times are ahead with Android. I use it on my Okta Touch as my primary OS most of the time and even on that phones humble hardware specs the OS is slick, easy to use and gorgeous to look at. It may not be as polished as Mobile OSX but it is open source and that means the possibilities are endless.

Looks like it will be a bumper year for Android handsets.  This article discusses some of the many devices that said to be in the works already.

It's a pity Kogan didn't show up to the CES with some demo units. Could it be that the build quality is poor and he didn't want to be shown up by his competitors? I'd be getting nervous by now if I had pre-purchased one of these units.
