Kogan KEVIN37 – the LCD TV solution to the GFC?

Kevin 07? Old news. Now there’s the KEVIN37, a cheekily-named new LCD TV from Kogan, priced to take the $900 many people will receive as part of the Australian Government’s Stimulus Package, our official attempt to stem the damage of the Global Financial Crisis (GC).

So, if you take the easy-come easy-go approach to your ‘free’ $900, you can now blow it all on one little piece of budget audiovisual gear.

Like all Kogan products, it is only available for purchase from the Kogan website, you cannot go to a store and ‘audition’ the TV. You can pre-order now, but the TV will not ship until April.

But wait, there’s more. For your $900 you’ll get the TV, plus a KEVIN37 high definition stimulus t-shirt.
