Cheap brand devices are the sought after ones across the world and understanding this, the local retailers have been experimenting for a little while about the same. Now, UK supermarket Tesco announced the details of Hudl2 tablet that is priced at just £129.
The previous generation Hudl was a huge success for the retailer and it managed to sell over 750,000 units of the slate that was launched in 2014. It has to be noted that around 35,000 units of the tablet were sold off in the first two days of its launch itself. In fact, this demand for the Hudl tablet was much higher than it was expected by the retailer and this has encouraged the firm to launch its successor, Hudl2 that is larger with a Full HD 8.3 inch screen.
Under the hood, the slate houses a quad-core Intel Atom processor running at 1.83 GHz clock speed that is paired with 2 GB of RAM to handle the multi-taking necessities. Imaging needs of the users are met by a 5 MP rear facing camera and there is 16 GB of internal storage along with an SD card slot for support to additional storage capacity up to 48 GB.
The Tesco Hudl2 slate comes with Android 4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box and has an unspecified battery size that is claimed to last up to 8 hours on full charge. With a pricing of £129 the slate is comparable to Amazon’s popular tablet range. However, it is not known if the tablet will be compatible to Play Store applications.
Tesco is also providing a wider range of accessories with the Hudl2 tablet and there will over 64 different cases and color combinations along with in-ear headphones, screen-protectors and user’s choice of stylus.
