Tesco launches tablet computer

Tesco has launched its new Hudl tablet, which will give consumers the chance to access multimedia on the go.
The supermarket revealed the device on Monday (September 23rd) but the unit has been rumoured for a number of months, with analysts predicting this represents a move from in-store to online entertainment operations.
Hudl will come in four colours: purple, black, red and blue and is fitted with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor – so its scratch-resistant HD display shouldn’t struggle to keep up even if a number of applications are running at once.
Bosses at the supermarket also revealed the tablet will have nine hours of battery life and 16GB of memory, which can be extended to 48GB with add-ons.
Consumers will be able to buy the device from September 30th onwards and it will retail at a low price-point of £119.
Philip Clarke, Tesco chief executive, said: “Hudl is a colourful, accessible tablet for the whole family to enjoy. The first stage in our tablet offering, it’s convenient, integrated and easy to use with no compromise on specifications.”
