We originally reported on the striking similarity (downright copied) between the Kogan Agora and this "shining" phone available on alibaba. We had our suspicions about the device, its availability, its power to run Android, its quality etc. but apparently Kogan had no idea about this device. Huh!?

Ruslan Kogan says:

"I am not aware of this manufacturer and I have doubts that it runs Android OS. It is certainly not what the Agora was going to be or in anyway related to it."

So I guess you should take that as a sign as don't buy that "shining" phone! Hopefully Kogan can figure everything out with the Agora and put it out on the market before more people steal the design.
