UK-based Supermarket chain Tesco launched an inexpensive Android tablet with a high-resolution display in 2013. Now the company’s updating its tablet line with the Tesco Hudl2.
It has a bigger, higher resolution display, a thinner bezel, and other improvements. It runs a newer version of Android, and has more RAM. It also costs more… but not much more.
The Tesco Hudl2 is priced at £129, or about $207 US and it’ll be available online October 8th or in-stores a day later.
The new model has an 8.3 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and an Intel Atom quad-core processor.
It runs Android 4.4. KitKat, 5MP rear and 1.2MP front cameras, and up to 8 hours of battery life.
Tesco’s tablet features the Google Play Store and other Google apps, and also comes with Tesco’s Blinkbox software for digital music, movies, and books.
Wow. Is this thing looking pretty awesome for the price or is it just me?
It’s clear we’re coming to a hardware plateau with tablets. Used to be cheap tablets were awful and expensive tablets are nice. Then we got to a place where some not-so-expensive tablets were surprisingly good. Even good on their own with no consideration of price. Now – we are right on the verge of expensive tablets being possibly fantastic but cheap tablets being quite good really.
I wonder if we’ll see a market change with a spike in tablet sales. Used to be when people would ask me about cheap tablets I’d tell them not to waste their money. Not the case any more.
Anyone know how it’s processor stacks up against the Tegra 4?
better CPU, much worse GPU, roughly the same power draw, maybe a little less than the Tegra
Thanks for that, was looking for a Tegra Note 7 replacement.. but will probably now hold out for something with a 64bit version of the K1.
