High street chain Argos is launching its own brand of tablet computer designed "with teenagers in mind".

The 7-inch device, called MyTablet, will cost £99.99 when it goes on sale on Wednesday.

A spokesman said the device has been designed "with teenagers in mind offering all the functionality of a traditional tablet with built-in parental controls for younger users".

It will run Google's Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 operating system and comes pre-loaded with apps, including Facebook and Twitter, and games.
