Argos unveils 99 quid tablet

But Tesco’s Hudl looks a bit better

British retail chain Argos has introduced a £99 tablet designed to take on Tesco’s Hudl, but we’re not sure that it can. Although the Argos MyTablet is £20 cheaper than the Hudl, it also falls short in the spec department.

It has a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and a 7-inch 1024x600 screen and 8GB of storage, while the Hudl packs a quad-core SoC and a 1440x900 display and 16GB of storage. MyTablet ships with what appears to be vanilla Android 4.2.2 with a few preinstalled apps like BBC iPlayer, Angry Birds and Facebook.

Clearly it hasn’t got much going for it, although it look cute and kids should like it.

“Millions of people have bought tablets during the last year but there is still around 75 per cent of the UK population without one. We know that tablets will feature heavily on Christmas lists this year," said John Walden, managing director of Argos. "At just £99.99 the Argos MyTablet is highly competitive with a great specification, and fits neatly in the range of tablets we have on offer.”

We wouldn’t exactly call it competitive as the Hudl offers a vastly superior screen, double the amount of CPU cores and double the amount of internal storage for just 20 quid more.
