Tesco releases Hudl 2 budget tablet

Android-powered, Intel Quad, 8-inch screen, bargain price!

By Ben Sullivan

Tesco has unveiled the Hudl 2, its second tablet computer following the release of the original Hudl last year.

The Hudl 2 features an Intel quad-core processor with an 8.3-inch Full HD screen, and will go on sale from October 9.

Tesco managed to shift over 400,000 Hudl tablets from September 2013 to early January 2014, as the budget slate went head to head with devices such as the £100 Argos MyTablet and Aldi’s £80 Medion Lifetab.

The Hudl 2 comes in eight "fab" colours and comes in at a price of £129. However, customers can bring the cost down to £65 by using Club Card boost.


In September, Tesco revealed it is shelving plans to build its own-brand smartphone.

The company’s CEO Philip Clarke had said earlier this year that a Tesco smartphone would go on sale, but this will no longer be the case, Robin Terrell, Tesco’s multichannel director, said in a recent interview.

Although the company was confident it could offer customers an affordable, quality 4G smartphone handset, Terrell said, these plans have now been put on hold, possibly indefinitely, due to the ultra-competitive nature of the smartphone market.
