Competing directly with the Tesco Hudi, the UK retailing giant Argos has this week announced their own Android tablet to hit the market, said to be designed specifically to be child friendly, the tablet comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed along with a selection of apps like Angry Birds and BBC iPlayer to help keep the kids quiet.
Also featuring a 7 inch screen, the MyTablet has a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, with 8GB of internal storage and support for both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
All of which only brings the price to a tiny £100, which is £20 cheaper than the Tesco Hudi (not taking vouchers into account).
To explain the concept of the tablet Simon Barry, the Argos technology trading manager said the following in his statement:
“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 will be available from Wednesday.
