Tesco Hudl Tablet release beats Nexus 7 price not specs
The Android platform has a number of lower cost tablet PCs available to consumers with the market leader being the Nexus 7 from Asus and Google, but the Tesco Hudl Tablet release beats the Nexus 7 price but not the specs.
Retailer Tesco has today officially announced a tablet that it’s calling the Hudl and it comes at a relatively low price of only £119, and the device will be available to consumers in only a week’s time on Monday, September 30th.
While it doesn’t quite match up to the specs of the 2013 Nexus 7 the device is no slouch, as you will get a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 with a pixel density of 243ppi. There is an unnamed quad core processor that is running at a 1.5GHz clock speed, but Tesco has so far not stated how much RAM the device has but hopefully it will have at least 1GB.
Other features include a 3MP rear facing camera and you even get a 2MP shooter around the front. Currently the device only comes with Wi-Fi connectivity but there is also Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI port, and GPS.
The tablet will arrive running the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system that is almost stock except from some minor Tesco apps. There will be four colours available at launch that include black, blue, red, and purple with Tesco claiming the battery can last for up to 9 hours on a single charge.
