We've tracked the Kogan Agora pretty intensely here at Android Central. It was originally targeted to be the Second Android Device but due to a screen resolution issue, it didn't quite materialize as expected. We loved the form factor of the original prototype--Android definitely needs a front facing QWERTY keyboard model in their lineup.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Agora as we know it won't be released. Instead, Kogan is looking to release a full touchscreen model that'll take advantage of Cupcake's soft keyboard. At least it'll come in an iPhone-esque 3.8 inch screen.
We're still rooting for Kogan because it's always great to see smaller companies make it and who doesn't want more Android devices? But we can't help but be a bit saddened that the original Agora isn't going to land in our hands. From Gizmodo's hands on, it definitely looked like a worthwhile device.
