A new tablet from Tesco called Hudl is to go on sale this Monday. The 7" model is expected to cost around £130 & be a competitor to the Nexus 7.

The PC Advisor article I linked to says it will have, but I guess the spec is largely guesswork until it's officially announced.

Does it? There's virtually zero info, no (confirmed) specs.

For the moment if you're on a budget, look at the first gen Nexus 7, or the Asus Memo Pad HD 7 (which looks to have better specs than those "leaked").

There was mention in the event of using doubled up clubcard points that some said makes it available for free using £60 of your clubcard points.

It doesn't look too bad; shame about the bezel.

Wonder what the processor is - quad core .... <what> ?

Yes definitely tempting. Might be a waiting list once people can see the value.

Not bad, hope its not a tesco customised version of android ( I know it has a tesco launcher button ) - the front screen pictures of your clubcard balance and shopping bag would drive me insane.

Hopefully it can be easily rooted and a custom ROM installed.

I think so too. I'm going to snap one up & get my staff discount too.

It is not a customized Android version.

On a par with a first gen Nexus 7 pretty much. Better in some ways (rear camera, expandable, micro HDMI). Actually looks like pretty good bang for your buck. First gen Nexus stock has been pretty much cleared now so this now looks good! Even moreso if folks have points and whatnot they can use to get it even cheaper ...

After an hours consideration I have decided to buy one of these

Save myself 80 quid on a Nexus . It is good value for money which is somewhat rare in the tech sector.


Every little helps

This could be perfect for my young nephew's birthday in a few weeks. We were looking at the original Nexus 7 but this could be a good option. I would quite like to know more about the cpu/gpu and how good it will be for playing games.
