DNP UK supermarket Tesco puts its name to a budget tablet the xx Hudl

Not content with flogging other people’s smartphones and tablets, now UK supermarket chain Tesco has become the latest to launch one of its own. Priced at £119 and available from September 30th, the Hudl features a 7-inch (1,440 x 900 pixel) display for watching those Blinkbox titles in 720p, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, stock Android 4.2.2, microSD expansion beyond the 16GB of internal storage and, according to Tesco, will last around 9 hours on a full charge. The device is slightly chubby and plasticky, as you’d expect, but it’s not some rebadge. Tesco says it worked directly with a manufacturer according to its own design. Also to its credit, the tablet feels sturdy, which seems to be a theme with certain Hudl-branded accessories too, including a pair of headphones and a rubbery case that are intended to be child-friendly. The retail giant says that it will offer double rewards on ClubCard vouchers, allowing customers to get the device for free if they have enough points for a £60 voucher. There’s also an offer coming on Blinkbox vouchers, designed to help boost the Hudle — we hear vouchers will be half-price next week, so you’ll be able to get £20 of content for a tenner.
