Tesco has, as expected, entered the tablet marked with a device called Hudl. Specs wise, this thing has a 7-inch screen with 1440 x 900 pixels screen, 1.5GHz quad-core chip (we’re not sure which company made it), Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and 16GB of expandable storage. There’s also a battery that provides enough juice to keep the tablet running for 9 hours.
Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is running the show, with few Tesco’s apps singing on top — including blinkbox movies and TV, music and Clubcard TV (free films and TV programmes for Clubcard holders), banking and of course shopping for groceries, clothing, homeware and more. Plus, as a family tablet, it has parental controls built-in, ensuring kids can only access the safe content from all around the Web.
Hudl will be available in four colors (black, blue, red and purple) from September 30th and will retail at £119. It will also be available on Clubcard Boost allowing customers with vouchers to get it for less than £100.
Tesco is known to experiment with new ideas. It was the first British supermarket to introduce grocery home shopping and supermarket drive-thrus in the UK and built the world’s first virtual store in South Korea.
