UK supermarkets carrying their own branded tablets is apparently a thing now, and Argos has joined Tesco with its launch of the 7-inch MyTablet. Though the £100 price trumps the £119 Hudl, the tab is decidedly more budget, featuring a 7-inch, 1,024 x 600 screen, dual-core 1.6-Ghz CPU, 2-megapixel camera and Android 4.2.2. Hudl, meanwhile, rocks a quad-core 1.5Ghz CPU and 1,440 x 900 screen. Also, unlike Tesco's in-house styled offering, MyTablet appears to be a rebadge, though we can't put our finger on the manufacturer. Argos told the BBC that it'll be affordable to its tween target market at that price, explaining that "kids find it hard to share." We won't argue with that logic, but we reckon parents should be more willing to spend the extra £19, given the difference in specs.
