Are you disappointed that you haven’t been able to buy a Tesco Hudl tablet in time as a Christmas gift this year? That disappointment may turn to a blessing in disguise somehwhat as we now hear that Tesco are planning to unleash the Tesco Hudl 2 in 2014 – specifically due to surprise demand for the first model.
If you haven’t heard, Tesco are up to their market price-slashing tactics again, by launching the Hudl tablet that costs just £119 to buy. For that price you get some very decent hardware specs as well, notably a 1.5Ghz quad-core processor which already takes it above most tablets in the ‘budget’ category.
Unfortunately though, huge demand in the build-up to Christmas has meant that consumers have been unable to get their hands on one. Tesco has now confirmed that Hudl tablet stock demand has in-fact taken them by surprise and they now plan to release an enhanced version in ‘early 2014′.
This enhanced version could be a Tesco Hubl tablet 2 that runs Android 4.4 Kitkat out the box. It could also be upgraded with an even faster quad-core chip, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. Consumers will also want to see an increase in RAM to at least 2GB and perhaps an even better camera than the 3MP rear camera that is currently fitted in the model now.
Everything else is fine on the tablet, the resolution is great, storage is adequate and gaming performance is excellent with a quad-core GPU setup. You can’t really go wrong for £119 and it’s a fantastic bit of business by Tesco to start selling a so called ‘budget’ tablet to consumers.
