Father’s Day 2015- The Techno Dad


If you want to give Dad a present this year that shows him you know he is still hip, whilst not encouraging his Dad jokes, then we may have found a couple of great items for you to consider from Currys.

QV830 8″ Tablet Silver

The Android Jelly Bean (4.2.2) operating system combined with the Quad-Core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM  and 8GB storage means that it has enough room to hold all of Dad’s pictures and music, whilst being able to stream movies and video seamlessly.

Add to that the 8″ screen (768 x 1024 pixel display), a 5 Megapixel camera, 720p HD and a 1.2 Megapixel rear camera, the QQV830 will quickly become attached to Dad as he takes stunning images and video.

Of course the ability to surf the web and download apps from the Google Play store, only make this even more attractive as it will allow Dad to customise the tablet to use it any way he wishes, for whatever he needs.  The possibilities are endless and there is no need to worry about battery charge as this Gigaset tablet can let Dad watch movies in HD for up to seven hours, listen to music (with no backlight) for up to 65 hours and will even last on standby for up to an incredible 240 hours.  Not only that but to reach a full charge, it only takes fours hours! 

The Gigaset QV830 is available from Currys for just £59.99, an absolute bargain when it comes to modern-day tablets!

Answering Machine

Life is busy these days and no doubt Dad is out and about a fair bit.  With the Gigaset C430A he will never miss a call as it comes with a built-in, easy to use answering machine.  He can use a message that comes installed on the telephone, or greet his missed calls with a personalised message.  A great large display on the base unit ensure that he will never miss a message! 

Contact Book

The built-in phone book can accommodate up to 150 contacts using full name and up to three numbers – home, work and mobile.  The C430A even lets Dad mark loved ones with reminders of special dates and occasions, so he wont forget those all important dates! 

Peace & Quiet

Dad will love this feature, as it means he is able to flick the switch and ensure he is not disturbed with the handy Day/Night switch! 

 Chat for Hours

Of course if he is in the mood for catching up with the family Dad wont need to worry as the phone has a staggering 14 hours standby.  The is even a handy belt clip so Dad can go hands free.

All in all this C430A is a great addition to any home, with customisable ringtones and personalisation settings and even an intercom if you chose to get additional handsets.

The C430A is available from Currys for £39.99

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme
    of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual
    appeal. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!
