Tesco leave us in awe by announcing a decent Android slab
Tesco have announced details of their Hudl Android tablet and it's surprisingly looking like it might actually be a reasonable piece of kit. The seven inch Android 4.2.2 device runs at a good 1440x900 resolution (offering an impressive PPI of 242.59) and it'll only set you back £119 for the 16GB variant (less for Clubcard voucher holders).
It comes with near-stock Android, and features USB and Micro-HDMI connections. It also includes access to Google Play. It even comes in four colours!
"Hudl is a colourful, accessible tablet for the whole family to enjoy. The first stage in our tablet offering, it’s convenient, integrated and easy to use with no compromise on spec. Customers are quite rightly very discerning about the technology they buy so we knew we had to be competitive on all fronts" said Tesco big cheese Phillip Clark.
