Argos unveils new budget-friendly smartphone and tablet range

Bush, which is now owned and solely distributed by Argos, has developed two smartphones which they describe as ‘budget-beating’.

Argos will sell these devices for just £49.99 and £79.99, and will add other wallet-friendly devices to its roster too, with a view to weaning people off their feature phones.

Both Bush devices run on Android, with the cheaper model offering a 4-inch display, 4GB of internal storage and a 5-megapixel camera, as well as two changeable covers to allow users to change the aesthetic of their device. The sub-£80 model has a slightly larger 5-inch display and 8GB of internal storage, which means that just about anyone can make the move away from feature phones with minimal expenditure.

Argos mobile phone buyer, Nick Clarke, said “The new Bush smartphone is the answer for technology beginners or digital veterans on a budget. Affordable and easy to use, people can use these phones for both their work and personal life as it holds two SIM cards, making it one of the most flexible smartphones on the market.”

Keen to stay ahead during lean times, Argos has added a number of other budget-friendly devices to its range too, including the 4G enabled Alcatel OneTouch Pop 2, which retails for £99.95 SIM-free and offers a ‘power bank’ in case your battery runs low.

If you’re the type to break devices, then the company’s Kazam Trooper 2 might be a better option; Argos is offering the 4.5-inch smartphone for £49.95 and that includes a free screen replacement within the first 12 months, making this an ideal first phone for youngsters and the terminally cack-handed alike.

Finally, not to be outdone, Bush has also added two tablets to its Argos arsenal, one with an 8-inch screen and a slightly larger model with a 10-inch display. The MyTablets both run on Android and offer high-definition displays and quad-core processors, as well as sleek aluminium casing.

If these sound like the sort of budget-friendly tech that floats your boat, head over to Argos now to check out the full range.
