Retail giant Dixons is entering the Christmas tablet computer fray against Tesco and Argos with a more upmarket model than its rivals, according to reports.
The website This is Money revealed the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 is set to be sold in Currys and PC World stores from Friday.
Priced at £180, according to the report, the Dixons product will be well below the £349 price of the iPad Mini, but more expensive than Tesco's £119 Hudl and Argos' £99 offering.
According to the most recent IDC figures tablet shipments are expected to reach 227.4 million units this year, down from its previous forecast of 229.3 million, but still an impresive 57.7 per cent above 2012 shipments.
