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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
