Manual here argos.scene7.com/is/…pdf (comes with MicroUSB charger - you can use an OTG cable, as with Linx tablets, to enable use of USB)

Comes with Office 365 apparently too (older thread here hotukdeals.com/dea…642 )

OTG cable 99p from the UK (many on ebay, just an example) ebay.co.uk/itm…645

Strange that Argos still have the 10" version on their website and not the 8" - the 10" is 1GB RAM. argos.co.uk/sta…htm £149.99 (I'd rather go for the Linx 1010 at this size :)).
2GB ram! Zippy!
Really close to biting on this, but the battery life is a real concern. The 1gb version says up to 4 hrs battery life, so im guessing it will be the same for this.
Battery was great in this as I had one myself.

The touchscreen wouldn't register properly after windows 10 update as well.

Looks great on paper but in reality not so good in my experience.

​Battery wasn't great I mean.

Still not sure if I'd trust it to get another one too.... Argos won't do exchanges btw if it's collect plus. So you have to wait a while for the refund
Money wasted, trust me.
Think you ought to put 'refurbished' in the title..
Have two for my kids for there home work battery life last most of the day with them doing homework and watching YouTube all day. The touch screen is a user error just let it do upgrade and keep settings and files, its only if you select clean install them it deletes the driver to touch screen
I'd highly recommend trying a windows tablet before buying one. From my experience, 8" is not a great size of screen for windows. Good device to output to a larger screen of course.

Nearly... but no HDMI
If your TV supports it, you could do screen mirroring with the Eluma B1, but that takes up some CPU power/drains battery.

These small Windows tablets aren't for everyone but for those that are in the market for one, this is a good purchase! I was lucky enough to get one for £60 brand new on the last deal posted here.

Also there are NO ISSUES with the touchscreen when updating to Windows 10, as long as you do an upgrade and not a clean install.
I've got one. Upgraded to win10 no problem. Admittedly I'd rather have got a Android tablet as I believe windows is only best experienced with a physical keyboard and isn't great for social media stuff as you don't have notifications like android does. Example windows Twitter app is complete crap compared to the android one. Other than that the device has been good but the WiFi module could have been better as WiFi reception is very weak in areas of my house where my laptops and phones would have no problem.
More awful cheap electronics from Bush.

My Windows tablet (Insignia 32GB) is fine with WiFi reception but when it is put into sleep mode I always have to reconnect to the AP.

I tried upgrading to W10 and it was the same, so just reverted to W8 as I couldn't see any real benefit overall.
I've got 2 x Dell Windows tablets and with Windows 10 y?they are both iffy sometimes forget the WIFI DRIVER

Android has improved leaps and bounds. Not to mention the lack of keyboard options for Windows

Must admit I do really miss SwiftKey/Swype apps on Windows - the Windows Store is rubbish but full Windows capability more than makes up for it. You can make the touch keyboard automatically appear, too thewindowsclub.com/mak…lly (Windows 10)

For ebooks I use (desktop program) Calibre, the Windows Store ebook reader options aren't great.
Out of stock now. I'll expire this.

Isn't it the case that the keyboard will pop up when in tablet mode but not in normal?
I found Tablet Mode too annoying for my needs (I have a Linx 10) so I can't comment
