And not, it's not an HTC. Surprisingly enough, Kogan, an Australian electronics company has launched the world's second Android phone, just months after the first G1 gPhone from T-Mobile.

Called Agora, the Android-based device features a 624 MHz processor, 128 MB RAM, 2.5-inch touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, 3G, Wi-Fi and also GPS. Some of the preloaded apps that come with the phone are: Gmail, Google Search, Calender, Maps, Google Talk and YouTube.

Kogan has started preorders of the contract-free and unlocked Agora Google phone on their website for $299 AUD ($192 USD) for the standard version and $399 AUD ($256 USD) for the Agora Pro version. The difference between the two is that Agora Pro will feature the 2 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and GPS, while the standard one will only leave you with the basic features. The phones will start shipping on January 29.
