Tesco’s Hudl tablets fly off the shelves
Tesco has confirmed better than expected sales for its own-branded Hudl tablet. The supermarket has sold over 300,000 since it was launched on 30th September.
The Hudl costs a mere £119 and is a 7 inch Android tablet that comes in four colours. It is so popular that the main Tesco site shows it as currently out of stock, but Tesco Direct does appear to still have stock.
Chief Executive Philip Clarke, told The Guardian “an enhanced version” was now a certainty. The hope will be that Tesco keeps the cost of any new model down, even if it manages to improve the device’s display and processor prowess.
One Tesco user gave feedback about their Hudl purchase “I have an Apple iPad and a Kindle Fire, but value for money the Hudl is the best”.
With sales and feedback like that we would anticipate Tesco introducing other sized branded tablets , possible a 10 inch model, and we wouldn't be surprised if Tesco decide to launch their own branded smartphone in the future.
The competition is certainly heating up for sales of budget tablet as Argos already has its own branded tablet called the MyTablet, whilst PC World/Currys has an exclusive with the the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7.
