Kogan Agora
Hopes that there'd be another Google Android phone launch this month have been dashed with the news that the Kogan Agora has been delayed

The joys of Google Android, the open and free platform for mobile phones, have so far been limited to the excellent, if ugly, T-Mobile G1 launched last October.

Australian manufacturer Kogan was due to launch its own Android-based mobiles, the Agora and Agora Pro, this month. However, its launch has now been indefinitely delayed.

According to Gizmodo, problems with the phone's low-res screen have scuppered plans to have it on sale by the end of January.

Rumour is developers are working on applications that will need a high-res screen, meaning the new device will be hamstrung when those new programmes are released on Android Market.

Kogan has apparently gone back to the drawing board, with plans for a beefed-up model at some point later this year. HTC, Asus, Sony Ericsson and Samsung are due to unveil Google phones later this year.
