I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to imagine life without TV box sets.

Literally, I don’t know how my parents survived long train journeys, flights and waits outside the school gates without the ability to load up a mobile device and watch a quick episode of Gilmore Girls.

It’s horrifying to me.

So when Vodafone asked me if I’d like to try out a new affordable tablet that comes complete with a Now TV entertainment pass AND a Sky Movies pass, I was happy to oblige.

The Vodafone Smart Tab 4G is an affordable Android 4.4 tablet with a really fast 4G mobile Internet connection and 8GB of storage.

This means you can search for programmes using the Sky/Now TV apps, and stream them online – providing you’re somewhere with a decent mobile signal, of course.

And of course, you can use the SmartTab 4G for all the usual things you’d use a tablet for – checking email, doing important work, playing Pet Rescue Saga… *cough* 

The 8-inch screen with HD display is usable, and easy for kids to handle, and there’s a decent 5MP camera.

The best thing about it might just be the price – at £125, this is a great option if you want to treat the kids to something that won’t break the bank (and won’t break your heart if they drop it). Of course, it’s also available on a contract for a small upfront payment (£29) with data costing around £15 a month on top.

I definitely didn’t feel like the Smart 4G was a “budget” device – it’s solid, quick and pleasing on the eye.

I’d like to tell you more about the Smart 4G tablet but it’s now in Flea’s playroom, being used to explore YouTube videos.

I’ve been offered the opportunity to give away a Vodafone Smart 4G tablet this Christmas to one reader of Who’s the Mummy.
