Today, the supermarket giant uncovers its own tablet, the Hudl. Powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the $190 device targets budget conscious buyers.

Earlier today, supermarket giant Tesco announced the Hudl, a 7-inch Android tablet "that aims to open up a world of entertainment and connectivity to all." The device was designed from scratch by Tesco for its 20 million customers and has an excellent price to features ratio.

The Tesco Hudl Android tablet packs the following specs:

  • Processor: quad-core 1.5 GHz (unspecified brand and model)
  • Memory/Storage: unspecified amount of RAM; 16 GB ROM and microSD slot up to 32 GB
  • Display: scratch resistant 7-inch touchscreen, 1,440X900 pixels and 243 ppi
  • Camera: two cameras (no details yet)
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, micro HDMI port
  • Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • Autonomy: up to 9 hours
  • Colors available: black, blue, red, purple

The Hudl provides easy access to Tesco's digital services through a dedicated launcher button. According to the press release, "These include blinkbox movies and TV, music and Clubcard TV (which offers free films and TV programmes exclusively for Clubcard holders), banking and of course shopping for groceries, clothing, homeware and more."

The tablet will be available for purchase in stores or via Tesco.com and Tesco Direct sites from September 30 at $190, a price that makes it an interesting competitor for Amazon's Kindle Fire HD.
