If you are Down Under and are anxious to get your Android groove on, you won't have to wait too much longer. Online retailer Kogan will be selling the Android-based "Agora" on January 29, 2009 and is accepting pre-orders NOW right here. There are two versions: the basic model costs $299, while the Pro version (which includes Wi-Fi, a camera and GPS) is $399.

VPN Deals: Lifetime license for $16, monthly plans at $1 & more

Kogan will sell them contract-free, so some of the network-integration features found on other Android phones may not be available on the Agora.  Gmail, Calendar, YouTube, Maps and talk will be included, of course. A special "Thanks!" goes out to Bradley and Daniel!
