It has been confirmed this week that Tesco is planning to launch a follow-up Android tablet to its popular Hudl tablet that launched in September 2013 throughout the UK and has sold around 500,000 units since launch.
The release of a new Hudl 2 tablet in 2014 has been rumoured for some time that this week Chief executive Philip Clarke confirmed via the BBC Radio 5 live’s Wake Up to Money programme that the Hudl 2 tablet will be launching in September 2014.
The new Tesco Hudl 2 Android tablet will be shipped pre-installed with Tesco services and is expected to be aimed at the lower end of the Android market similar to the existing Hudl that is priced at £119.
Tesco’s is also planning to launch a smartphone before the end of 2014, however this handset is expected to be aimed at the higher end of the smartphone market yet aggressively priced.
Unfortunately no details on the price or hardware specifications for either the new Android Hudl 2 tablet or the newly announced Tesco smartphone have been released as yet, but as soon as more information becomes available we will keep you updated as always.
