I'm not sure I'd describe a 4" screen as a tablet!

Argos have put hardly any effort into describing it, what's the screen size and os?

I did say "little tablet"

Had a play with one in John Lewis at the weekend, it's quite a nice piece of kit, especially at this price

No offence taken Maybe saying tablet is a bit of a stretch, but it's still a good "thing" - sub-tablet?...

Potentially, although I think of this more like an iPod Touch than an iPad, so wins on portability. I haven't searched for the specs yet (e.g screen resolution, CPU/GPU type) and not listed here, so not voting yet. My daughter has cheap, single core, no front camera, Android phone, minus the SIM card - plays Minecraft etc, so this may be useful upgrade.

And me!

Sounds like it would make a good universal remote for any DLNA devices on your home network. Smart TV, networked media player, XBMC etc.

This was planned to be for my son, but thinking I may get one for myself too. It'll be handy for quite a few little home automation jobs around the house...
