Kogan has just launched a new version of its Agora smart TV HDMI dongle that sports all of the same features as its predecessor, but now packs a stronger punch in the hardware department. The new dongle features a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The new Kogan HDMI dongle also houses 8GB of RAM, a mini USB port, and a microSD slot to add additional storage space. The remote features a 2.4GHz wireless connection, and the company has an optional Kogan-branded wireless keyboard and trackpad for just $39 more. I would like to see how this stacks up to Google's Chromecast in terms of ease of use and setup, not to mention streaming quality. With the device running Android, I would imagine that it behaves much like my Pivos Xios DS media box.
