So Tesco have announced that they’re getting into the tablet game with the announcement of the Hudl tablet. Running Android Jellybean 4.2.2, has a 7″ 1440×900 screen, and will only set you back £119. Presumably they can afford to be so competitive because the point of the tablet is to point you into the direction Tesco’s built-in money-spinners, like the Blinkbox on-demand film service.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the inevitable Hudl Extra, which will be the size of an aircraft hanger, and Hudl Metro, which will be tiny but found seemingly every 300m in South London.
But what if you don’t want to, well, Hudl? What if you want to go your own way? There’s plenty of choice out there, and here are five of the most interesting alternatives.
