Yes it would be HD screen and fast processor. Would be perfect in my opinion.

What brand are the eBay ones, if they're unknown Chinese brands stay well away and get this instead.
Alba? oO The only Alba I`d like a "go" on is Jessica. Cold.
2 year old !!!
Alba is a Argos brand now I think. Such as Bush and Wharfdale.
Alba does not make anything, it rebrands Chinese products with there name that's all. But I'd like to know what OEM it's rebranding this tablet from if anyone knows?
Rebranding does my blinkin' fruit...
Even the "big boys" like Sony seem happy to flog their name to the unknown these days making it nigh on impossible to know what you're buying.
Reserved one, not many android tabs have hdmi out. has anyone got one yet and can comment, good or bad?

Tell me about it. Bought a Panasonic TV recently. Was without a doubt the worst picture i have ever seen. Completely and utterly unwatchable. Took it straight back to Argos. Only after research i found out Panasonic dont make TV anymore, just sell there name.
Very good price for a 10" tablet.I got the 10" connect one by Viglen from Tesco with windows 10 for £99 and if you are wanting windows instead it is a pretty smooth runner at a very good price too.
Most RAM in the world for a tablet at 16Gb?

They still do the higher end stuff (will say made in Czechoslovakia on box), the crap sets are vestel and made in turkey.
The title should say 1GB RAM not 16GB RAM.

It will be a very old TV as Czechoslovakia as a country ended in 1990 and was split in the the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic and still exists as two separate adjoining countries to this day. As a side note UMC (Universal Media Corporation) manufacture many TV sets under licence in the Slovak Republic, one such brand they build are Blaupunkt TVs. Czechoslovakia hasn't existed for 25 years, maybe they were ahead of their time?

There's a wide variety of music apps available off the google play store. So I'd say yes it is good
Are the speakers loud and clear on YouTube?
Anyone know the maximum size of microSD that you can put in this? The Argos website only says that it has a microSD slot.

I would imagine 32Gb

Don't know you'd have to buy one and see or look for a review.
The only Alba stuff I remember was cheap and nastyish radios and hifi sold by Woolies - if Argos indeed own this as well as Bush and Winfield, have they upped the quality at all ?
I have just purchased this today as a Birthday gift for my Mum. It comes fully charged so can be used straight away. I found it very easy to set up and navigation is simple. The size of the touch keyboard would be especially helpful for someone not used to using touch screen or maybe someone who has difficulty reading small print as the symbols etc are quite large, easy to read and very clear. I am really pleased with the purchase :-)
Webcam?? Has anyone got one of these tablets or seen a full specification? Does it have two cameras? A tablet normally has one on back and front. How many megapixels? Item 418/1468 is a bit similar, with more storage.

Sound? does it have one speaker grille or two. front or back? When playing a video or music, is the speaker sound adequately loud and clear? Or tinny/muffled/distorted. I trust the headphone sound is OK.
I bought one of these on Saturday, after a couple of hours setting it up, a strip of pixels decided to die. Glad it happened within 30 days so that I can get a full refund, cheap for a reason.
