Tesco Hudl 2 coming in 2014, will be 'enhanced'

Tesco has revealed plans to follow up Hudl, its hugely successful budget Android tablet with an updated version due in the new year. The Tesco Hudl 2 will be an "enhanced version", says Tesco's chief executive Philip Clarke.

As reported in The Guardian, Tesco sold more than 35,000 Hudl tablets in just a few days after launch. It was now sold over 300,000 units, more than originally planned for the whole of 2013.

"They are flying off the shelves so quickly it has run out of stock twice," said Michael Cornish, chief digital officer at Tesco.

The current Tesco Hudl tablet costs £119 and sports a 7-inch screen with a 1440 x 900 resolution (242ppi). It runs on a 1.5GHz A9 quad-core processor, has 1GB of RAM and uses a Mali 400 quad-core graphics processing unit.

You can buy it in four different colours - black, purple, red and blue - but online stock is currently completely sold out. Tesco advises you try your local Tesco Extra store for now, although it does hope to have more stock available in time for Christmas.
