Argos launch their own tablet... are you at all interested?

15 October 2013

argos aliens Argos have copied Tesco and launched an own-brand Android tablet computer, just in time for the Christmas madness.

MyTablet will come pre-loaded with apps like iPlayer and Angry Birds and will  retail for £100 for 7in of Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 goodness.

It doesn't quite match up to Tesco's Hudl, but it is marginally cheaper. Argos are aiming their device at the "tweenie" market, which means you'll be able to buy it in pink or silver. As it is being aimed at 8-13 year-olds, the tablet comes with the parental controls already enabled.

It features a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, a 1024 x 600 resolution LCD glass screen, 8GB of built-in memory, and wi-fi and bluetooth connectivity.

Simon Barry, Argos technology bod says: "We think this hits the sweet spot in terms of price and performance. Kids find it hard to share, so we've priced our tablet at a level that means everyone in the family can have one. We know a lot of families are probably feeling worse off this Christmas than last. We're confident MyTablet is going to do really well."

The MyTablet goes on sale on Wednesday, so you can write abusive tweets to the Argos aliens all day long.

    When it was announced, I knew it would be a 7" £100 tablet with generic specs, along with some marketing crap about it being what the market wants and helping 'poor' families. As if there aren't enough mediocre sub £100 android tablets around Now if it was under £60 it might have been worth a look, but there is no way this will make any sort of impact compared to the kindle fire, nook HD+, hudl etc at the budget end.

    The Hudl is quite powerful. The benchmarks are very impressive.

    That curry i had was quite powerful. The skidmarks are very very impressive.
