UK supermarket chain Tesco is taking the wraps off its new budget tablet running Android, the 7-inch Hudl (pronounced “huddle.”) The Hudl will sell for a fraction of the price of Google’s Nexus 7, though with somewhat cut-down specs. The tablet features an 1440×900-resolution screen, a 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, dual-band Wifi and 16GB of storage, expandable up to 48GB via microSD. There’s also a microHDMI port for TV connectivity. It runs near-stock 4.2.2 with a full suite of Google apps as well as access to Tesco’s Blinkbox and Clubcard TV platforms.
The tablet comes in black, blue, purple, and red. It will sell for £119 ($191) through Tesco’s online and retail stores starting September 30th. The specs are below for the device.
