Tesco: ‘No plans’ for Hudl 3 tablet

Surprisingly, and against all odds, the Tesco Hudl range of tablets has been a resounding success.

Unfortunately, it appears that Tesco might be shuttering the line for good.

A spokesperson for Tesco reveals the firm has “no plans” for a Hudl 3, as revealed in a report by Marketing Magazine.

What’s more, it turns out that several people who worked on the Hudl and Hudl 2 are no longer involved with Tesco.

The report details these individuals as lead Android engineer Kirwan Lyster, and product managers Poppy Newdick, James Peacock, and Joe Newall.

The article also claims that “a source with knowledge of the matter confirmed a third-generation Hudl will likely never appear”.

Tesco first revealed its Hudl tablet back in September 2013, in an effort to bring cheap tablet computing to its customers.

At just £119, it was a relative hit, and Tesco managed to ship 750,000 units of the slate.

Banking on the success, Tesco launched a successor – the Hudl 2 – in early October last year, again offering respectable quality as a budget £129 price.

Would you be sorry to see the Tesco Hudl binned? Let us know in the comments.
