Recently Tesco officially announced the second generation Hudl tablet joining the UK retailer tablets lineup. Featuring 8.3-inch 1080p HD screen and quad-core Intel Atom processor the device seems to be a great improvement in comparison to its predecessor. What’s even more interesting the pretty good tech specs come along with the astonishingly low price of £129 which is around $207. If you feel interested in the Hudl 2 and the Tesco offer, let’s take a closer look at it.
8.3-inch Tesco Hudl 2 Android Tablet
All familiar with the previous edition of Hudl will almost immediately notice few relatively important leaps in the Hudl family design. The Tesco Hudl 2 sports a larger 8.3-inch high definition display featuring 1920×1200 resolution that translates to a pretty decent pixel density of 265 ppi. The tablet is said to be powered by a quad-core Intel Atom CPU paired with 2GB RAM, which is also a great change for good in terms of the tablet’s parameters. There is also 16GB of built-in storage that can be expanded up to 48GB via microSD cards.
Going further, the manufacturer equipped the Hudl 2 in a 5-megapixel rear shooter supported by a 2.1-megapixel front-facing one. Additionally, there are also Dolby optimized speakers located at the slate’s front side. When it comes to connectivity, the Hudl 2 is reported to come with dual-band Wi-Fi, all these will be powered by a pretty capable battery that, though still of unknown parameters, is said to deliver even 8 hours of work and entertainment on a single charge.
Speaking of the tablet’s software, the Hudl 2 goes on sale with the pre-loaded version of Android 4.4.2 Kitkat, despite there is still no official announcement whether the device will receive the Android L update, we may safely assume the update to be highly probable. Furthermore, Tesco offers their customers the Blinkbox media software that offers music, movies, TV programs and book from one place.
It should be also mentioned that Tesco Hudl 2, as a tablet targeting at families, comes with its own Hudl helpline service, which may appear to be very useful especially when we take into account the fact that it’s not water-proof, and no one can predict what may happen when kids put their hands on it.
The Hudl 2 is expected to hit Tesco shelves on October 9th. It will be labeled with the budget-friendly price tag of £129, which is an equivalent of $207. Anyone interested in having the new Hudl 2 on their one can pick among a wide range of color schemes, including black, blue, red, white, pink, turquoise and orange.
