While the race to deliver the second Android cellphone is still a wide open affair, one of the frontrunners is trying to repair customer morale after an initial stumble. The Kogan Agora was all ready to be shipped to fulfill online orders and become the answer to a trivia question-which phone followed the G1 to become Android device number two? But before the phones left the loading dock, Google had a chat
with Kogan to tell him that the Agora's screen did not have the resolution to run current and future Android applications. All orders were canceled. We just reported the other day that the device has been redesigned
with a higher resolution display and that the upgraded phones will be sold at the original offering price. If a letter posted on the web from a person who ordered the original model is true, Kogan is trying to wash the bad experience away by offering perks to those who ordered the phone the first time. The company is giving a $30 credit toward the purchase of the redesigned Agora. Wait. There's more. Once the new shipment of phones is ready to go out, the person is guaranteed to get one of the devices from the first batch of phones being sent out. In other words, you get to cut in line just in case the model sells out. Would this attempt to wine and dine a potential Agora buyer work on you?
