Argos top tablet predictions for Christmas 2013

A short while  ago I was delighted to be able to attend the Argos top technology predictions for Christmas. It was hosted by Markitters4DC in London.

It was the first ever blog event I have attended and it was great to meet some people  had spoken to but never met.

When we arrived there was a selection of tablets and accessories for us to play with. We are an Apple family here so we love our Iphones, Ipods and Ipads. It was a great opportunity to get to see and play with something different.

 

First up we have the BUSH My tablet £99

    The leap pad tablet looks great for children, I don’t think my family could ever be persuaded to change from the ipad though.
