SRP: £99.99
Just a matter of days after Tesco launched its Hudl tablet device, Argos has announced one of its own, which undercuts the Supermarket chains' product by nearly £20.
The MyTablet is available from today, priced at £99.99, and features a 7-inch display. It runs on Android version 4.2.2 and comes pre-loaded with apps including Facebook and Twitter to reflect the fact it's aimed at a younger audience.

The device has choices of pink or silver, metallic cases.

A spokesman said the device has been designed "with teenagers in mind offering all the functionality of a traditional tablet with built-in parental controls for younger users".

The screen resolution is - a nothing to write home about - 1024x600 but the 1.6Hz dual core processor should provide reasonable performance and there's 8GB of internal, expandable via a Micro SD port which can support cards up to 32 GB.
