The retail store, Tesco is to launch its new 7-inch Hudl tablet in the United Kingdom at a nominal price. It will lead to greater entertainment and will be a source of networking for all. The device is being targeted towards Tesco’s more than 20 million clients. It has a speedy 1.5 GHz quad-core processor not to mention a dual band Wi-Fi. The gadget will provide access to films, music and television shows.
Furthermore, keeping in touch, gaining new knowledge, retail therapy and gaming can all be accomplished via the Hudl. A scratchproof display screen is best for watching HD movies. The gizmo has a long battery life and a 16 GB memory storage capacity that can be taken all the way up to 48 GB.
Basically, what you see in Hudl is the cream of Tesco’s talent being melded with the best in Android Jellybean 4.2.2. Hudl is available in four hues. It will be on sale by the end of this month at Tesco stores and online to boot. The cost price is 119 pounds.
Tesco wants to erase the image that most gadgets have of being astronomically expensive. And it is also imitating Amazon which came up with its Kindle tablets some time ago. Tesco has acquired Mobcast and enhanced its Blinkbox service as well. Its new experiment with Hudl may prove the very stimulus that will promote growth and rake in profits for the giant.
Tesco CEO, Philip Clarke, 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 spec. Customers are quite rightly very discerning about the technology they buy so we knew we had to be competitive on all fronts. Being online is an increasingly essential part of family life and whilst tablets are on the rise, usage is still quite limited. We feel the time is right for Tesco to help widen tablet ownership and bring the fun, convenience and excitement of tablets to even more customers across the UK. The digital revolution should be for the many, not for the few.”
