Agora Android Phone Delayed By Glitches 84

An anonymous reader points out this report at which says that "THE first Australian 'Google phone' set to go on sale within weeks has been delayed indefinitely, with the manufacturer Kogan forced to refund early buyers. In a statement released this afternoon, the company said the delay was 'due to future interoperability issues.'The Agora reached a very late stage of development, manufacturing had commenced and we were within days of shipping the product to customers,' company founder Ruslan Kogan said in a statement."

    A couple of guys came from Google. Our CEO had been waiting for them by the door. someone says they went straight to a meeting room and were there for less than 20 minutes. no one saw them leave, but as soon as they were gone our CEO called a meeting. He looked very pale. he said: "I've halted the production on the Android phones." he said we were not to ship any of the products that have already rolled off. he told us to cancel all orders and refund all pre-orders. then he left the building with the marketing director.

    Our CEO has not been back since then. This must be big.

    I'm working day to day with the Android SDK and Emulator. The Eclipse plugin ships configured for QVGA-L (320x240) and QVGA-P (240x320) in addition to the HVGA resolutions.

    I have wondered if I really needed to worry about the lower rez models, this is another thing helping me lean in the direction of HVGA or higher. Wonder what else will happen in this space this year.
