Argos MyTablet takes aim at Tesco Hudl in the £100 tablet wars

Everyone’s getting into the business of building their own Android tablet, with Tesco announcing the 7-inch Hudl last month for £119, and now Argos is joining in on the fun with the £99.99 MyTablet.

The MyTablet won’t be aimed at those of you interested in watching 4K video or 3D gaming, with the spec sheet feeling a little outdated, but at just £99.99 this could be the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of Android tablets. The Argos MyTablet will feature a 7-inch (1024 x 600) LCD screen, 8GB of storage, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, as well as the standard WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity options.

Tesco managed to shift 35,000 of its £119 Hudl tablet within days of release, meaning Argos is looking to replicate that success. If you do pick up a MyTablet Argos will help you along the way with two very special pre-loaded apps, BBC iPlayer and Angry Birds, standard apps you’ll want on any tablet.

Whilst the Hudl is aimed predominantly at those who want their first tablet experience, Argos appears to be aiming its tablet at kids aged between 8-13.
