Retailing giant Tesco has unveiled its own cheap Android tablet, intended to showcase its own TV and online shopping services, a strategy reminiscent of Amazon's strategy with its Kindle Fire tablet range.
Tesco's Hudl tablet (seen above) has a seven-inch 1440x900 HD screen, with 16GB of storage (expandable to 64GB) and runs Android Jellybean 4.2.2.
It packs a quad-core 1.5GHZ processor, micro-HDMI port, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and claims a nine-hour battery life when watching video. It goes on sale in around 1,000 Tesco stores and online from 30 September.
One element that sets it apart from most low-end Android tablets is that is features a 'launcher' button (bottom left of the picture) which takes users directly to Tesco's digital services, including blinkbox movies and TV, music and Clubcard TV, banking and shopping for groceries.
