Argos MyTablet is a £100 Tesco Hudl rival

Fresh from the pages of the laminated book of dreams, the new Argos MyTablet is a £100 rival to the Tesco Hudl tablet.

Fresh from the pages of the laminated book of dreams, the new Argos MyTablet is a £100 rival to the Tesco Hudl tablet.

Under the metal MyTablet's 7-inch, 1,024x600 LCD glass screen is a dual-core 1.6GHz processor, with 8GB of storage. It has a microSD memory card slot, HDMI connection, a 2-megapixel camera on the back and a low-resolution camera for video chat on the front. Argos claims five hours of battery life.

The whole shebang is powered by Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 software, which isn't quite the latest but is near as darn it for this price.

Manufactured under Argos' own Bush technology brand, the tablet comes with 19 apps already loaded and ready to go, including BBC iPlayer, Angry Birds and an e-Book reader.

At £100, the MyTablet is £20 cheaper than the Hudl, although it's not as well-specced out -- and if you're a loyal Tesco shopper you can get the supermarket slate for as little as £60 worth of Tesco Clubcard points.

The Argos MyTablet comes in pink or silver and is available tomorrow, online or in stores.
