Tesco Hudl 2 officially unveiled

After selling 750,000 of the first generation Hudls, Tesco has unleashed the new Tesco Hudl 2 tablet with the same cheap price.

Calling it ‘bigger, better and faster’, Tesco says it has cut no corners with the second generation and intends this slate to be a primary device, making its intentions clear that it’s serious about making a tablet to compete with the best.

Among the changes, there’s a bigger screen moving from a 7-inch to a more iPad Mini-like 8.3inch screen and the resolution has been given a bump up to a Nexus 7-rivalling 1,920 x 1,200 resolution as well to make it better for watching videos.

For power, Tesco has turned to Intel, packing a quad-core processor that makes the Hudl 2 three times faster than the first Hudl. It will also run on Android 4.4 KitKat so it’s will be reasonably up to date with the latest Android tablet and still give you access to the Google Play app store.

Elsewhere, there’s a new 5-megapixel main and a lower resolution 1.2 front-facing camera, arguably one of the Hudl’s weakest features and it now includes more-family friendly features similar to those offered through Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets so you can control how much time the little ones can play on it.

The good news is that the Tesco Hudl 2 will cost just £129 and Tesco Clubcard customers can buy it for as cheap as £65.

The Hudl 2 will go on sale on October 9th.
