Kogan Bouncing Back With All-Touch Version of Agora

Remember the Agora Pro?  It was supposed to have been the world’s second Android phone, but instead, it ended up being scrapped at the last minute.  Rumor has is that the Agora Pro was not going to work with a lot of future Android apps due to screen resolution.  So what is the company doing now?  According to Gizmodo, they are readying their all touch version of the Agora.

Giz had a chance to play with a prototype of Kogan’s original handset and liked what they saw.

Ultimately, the hands on experience left me lusting for an actual Kogan Android handset.

The future release is said to drop the QWERTY keyboard for a 3.8″ touch screen.  Instead of going with a Motorola Q/Samsung Blackjack look, it’s now going to try to blend in with all the other slab phones coming out.

What do you guys think?  Do you like the change or were you fond of the original Agora design?
