You can zoom in and out and get a sense for the older and newer parts of the city, and click on individual buildings to be told the specific year. Given that NYC is a young city by worldwide standards, you’ll struggle to find anything pre-1800 (the oldest we found was built in 1765) – we’d love to see what the map's creator, San Francisco-based programmer Brandon Liu, could do with data from a European metropolis like London or Paris.

Build quality is surprisingly solid but the hardware and Android 2.3 OS are mismatched. There should be Back, Home, Menu and Search buttons below the screen but instead you get an unmarked circular Back button, while what was clearly intended as a volume control has been reassigned to Home and Menu duties. That leaves no hardware volume controls, meaning you have to exit an app and restart it to change volume.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £125.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Clearly compromised, but for this price the Kogan is a remarkable bargain</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/kogan-agora-7in-tablet-pc </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/kogan-agora-7in-tablet-pc/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/kogan-agora-7in-tablet-pc/review#comments Agora 7in Tablet PC Kogan Tablets Fri, 16 Sep 2011 10:39:59 +0000 Jools Whitehorn 417916 at http://www.stuff.tv Kogan Agora Internet TV Portal http://www.stuff.tv/kogan/kogan-agora-internet-tv-portal/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Turn your TV into a massive Android tablet </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1000" height="511" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-iptv-1_1.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1024" height="319" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-iptv-2.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="285" height="623" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-iptv-3.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="354" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands1.JPG?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="273" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands2.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="303" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands3.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="362" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands6.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="275" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands4.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="287" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/kogan-agora-hands5.jpg?1364298551" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Android takes another step towards domestic domination with this paperback-sized smart TV box.
