When Apple said they were to release a tablet the world laughed and thought they were mad, this also happened to Amazon. However, they have proven with their iPad and Kindle Fire that there was no need to worry because they knew what they were doing. You might wonder why we are giving you a history lesson, well this is because Tesco is to launch their own tablet.
Tesco is the UK’s biggest supermarket chain and has entered a partnership with Hudl to supply their own brand tablet. While some of you will wonder why Tesco would wish to enter such a competitive market, it is clear by the specs that this will not be like some of the cheap Android tablets already available on the market.
The Tesco Hudl tablet price undercuts competitors by a huge margin, and like we said the Tesco tablet specs are pretty decent with a 7-inch HD display, 1.5 GHz processor and 16GB of storage, which can be expanded to 48GB. All this comes at a price of £119, which is £20 more expensive than the Kindle Fire, which will be is closet competitor, although this only comes with 8GB of storage and lacks a HD display.
We do find it funny how some websites will be offering a Tesco Hudl tablet vs. iPad mini comparison when they are in a different league with each other, and the fact the mini has a 7.9-inch screen and starts at £269 proves that.
According to the supermarket the Tesco Hudl tablet release date will be September 30 and will come in a choice of 4 colors, these are black, blue, purple and red – what happened to the blue and white stripe model?
