    If I was cash strapped enough that I had to purchase a phone and tablet in this range, I would go to Ebay and find some inexpensive Asian "no-name" products. At least they would have much better specs and performance.

    Phone is a stupid move - Nokia brand for £10 more and probably better quality is a no brainer.

    The tablet though is a much more intriguing offering - £129.99 Windoes and full office subscription is a good deal. All those parents wanting to buy their younger kids a tablet for school and play, this ticks all the right boxes. Through in a £20 bluetooth keyboard and your got a singing and dancing microsoft office platform. .

    The phone makes no sense when they sell the Moto E (A far superior phone) for the same price(or £10 more unlocked).
    The Tesco Hudl2 is available for the same price as the MyTablet, has better specs and runs android.

    Once again Argos has shown they have no clue when it comes to electronics.

    seriously....you're comparing android to a full x86 os tablet.... I know which I'd pick up and it isn't the android one (I have an android tablet and phone).

    LOL at the 0.3MP camera. I mean, that's utterly pointless. For everything. Just leave the camera off and shave a few quid off the price!

    Please note: Argos has sent me an update, and updated its webpage to reflect the fact, that the Bush Smartphone has a built-in 5MP main camera, not 0.3MP. Not so bad afterall!
