Argos Launches £100 MyTablet Slate

By - Source: Crave | B 4 comments

Tesco's Hudl tablet has some competition.

In September, UK supermarket Tesco launched an own-brand Android tablet called Hudl. Priced at £119, the tablet competes directly with Amazon's Kindle Fire and Google's own Nexus 7. Now, just a few weeks away from the Hudl's launch, there's a new kid on the block, and this one is even cheaper than the already competitively priced Hudl.

The tablet is dubbed MyTablet and is from Argos. Crave reports that the tablet packs a 7-inch 1024 x 600 LCD, a dual-core 1.6 GHz CPU, 8 GB of integrated storage (with microSD support for storage expansion), support for HDMI, and WiFi. The battery life is apparently five hours. It's made by Argos' Bush technology brand and comes pre-loaded with 19 applications including popular favorites like iPlayer and Angry Birds. In comparison, Tesco's Hudl tablet packs a 7-inch 1440 x 900 display, runs on a quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU and features 16 GB of storage, a microSD slot, WiFi, speakers, a 3-megapixel camera, and a battery that lasts nine hours.

Argos' MyTablet will go on sale Wednesday, October 16, and will cost £100.

    That is quite a drop in specs for a 20£ price drop O_o
    There is no excuse not to get the Hudl over this.

    Especially when you get the Hudl mega cheap with enough Tesco Clubcard points. I believe it can be bought for something like £60

    Argos are also selling the Acer Iconia B1-710, exactly the same specs and price - so not only will this not compete with the Hudl, but will cannibalise existing sales of other models - way to go Argos!
