Wondering how good Android tablets are these days? At least one member of the htxt.africa team recently gave up their laptop for one and vowed never to go back to a desktop operating system while on the move again.

And if you haven’t yet been bitten by the Android bug, allow us to fix that for you.

Our friends at Arbalest have given us a 7inch Huawei MediaPad YouthPad 2 to give away to one lucky reader in our awesome monthly competition. The YouthPad 2 is a slimline and portable slate with a quad core processor and 1GB of RAM built-in. On top of the Android 4.3 operating system you’ll find the simple and friendly UI of Huawei’s own Emotion User Interface software to guide you from app to app.

It comes with 4GB of storage on board and a microSD card slot for expanding that to 32GB at will. You can see one in the picture above.

Its best feature, however, is the built-in modem which will let you surf the net wherever you are (providing you supply a SIM card) at speeds of up to 21Mbps download via HSPA+.

As if that’s not enough, Arbalest is also throwing in a 2 600mAh Milk Momax battery pack too. It’s a battery pack that looks like a carton of milk. Ace.

They look like this.

Power Milk 3, a USB battery backup box with juice for your phone.
