UK retailer Argos has announced its own Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean MyTablet for children and young adolescents. It will be available this holiday season for approximately 100 pounds. The tablet is a 7 inch device that has parental controls among its many features.
Argos has gained entry into the world of tablets by coming out with its MyTablet. This is a gadget meant for those on a shoestring budget. It is worth 100 pounds and is the answer to Tesco’s Hudl tablet. The rivals of Argos include Google’s Nexus, Amazon’s Kindle Fire and of course the aforementioned Tesco’s Hudl. These are currently selling for 200 pounds, 100 pounds and 120 pounds respectively.
Compared to Tesco’s Hudl, this critter for kids offers downgraded specs. A low res screen and halved storage capacity are other facts about the features. Even the battery span is less than Tesco’s Hudl. It comes in two hues: silver and pink. Google Play store is available on the device.
The BBC iPlayer along with the popular game known as Angry Birds are supported by the gizmo. There is even an e-reader application. While six million units have already been picked off the shelves during this year, the real hard sell will occur come Christmas time. Besides, tablets are in while PCs are out.
The Argos MyTablet has Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean running on it. A 1.6 GHz dual-core processor along with 6GB of memory storage capacity exists on this baby. And a microSD slot and five hour battery life are other features worth mentioning. Finally it comes complete with a camera having many pixels. Don’t forget to buy one for junior this Yuletide.
