Argos dole out budget tablet and mobile

22 January 2015

argos logo Remember Bush? No, not the fella who ran America even though, remarkably, he had less braincells than Reagan - the people who used to make tape-eating stereos? Well, they owned wholly by Argos these days and together, they've developed , two devices which they say are 'budget-beating'.

Argos will sell them for just £49.99 and £79.99 and both devices will run on Android, obviously.

The cheaper model is a mobile that has a 4-inch display, 4GB of internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera. It'll have interchangeable covers too. The more expensive device has a slightly larger 5-inch display and 8GB of internal storage.

Argos mobile phone buyer, Nick Clarke, said “The new Bush smartphone is the answer for technology beginners or digital veterans on a budget. Affordable and easy to use, people can use these phones for both their work and personal life as it holds two SIM cards, making it one of the most flexible smartphones on the market.”

There'll also be a 4G enabled Alcatel OneTouch Pop 2 device too, selling for £99.95 and SIM-free, which also has a 'power bank' back-up for when your battery is running low.

In addition to all that, Bush will be selling tablets as well as mobiles, with one of them having an 8 inch screen and a slightly bigger version with a 10-inch screen. The MyTablets will also run on Android.

Things are heating up in the budget technology stakes!

    So argos show up to the party - a few years too late - with a dire offering of a product that nobody cares about. Nice. I can imagine the 'buzz' in the boardroom when this dross was announced.
