The Tesco Hudl 2 is here. It’s bigger, faster, and still a bargain

The Hudl is a special breed of tablet. It’s small, it’s cheap, and it’s made by a company not really know for making mobile hardware. Which makes the fact that it isn’t terrible all the more impressive. Tesco unveiled the Hudl 2 this morning, and it’s had a significant upgrade without overly-inflating the price.

The Hudl 2 comes with a quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom process (which means it’s twice as fast), has an 8.3-inch ‘toughened screen’ running at a resolution of 1920 x 1200, 16GB of internal storage, and a 5MP camera. You shouldn’t care about the camera, though, only monsters take photos with a tablet.

The tablet itself runs Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), which may seem a little antiquated with the impending release of Android L but you still have to realise that this version of the OS is less than 12 months old. It also has a parental filter built-in for those of you who stick your kids in front of the tablet rather than the brain-rotting television. It’s all customisable, and even has a timer built-in to ensure that they aren’t spending too much time buying expensive power-ups in Candy Crush Saga.

The Hudl 2 is priced at £129, which is £30 more than the current price of the original, and £10 more than the originals launch price. You can use your Clubcard points to reduce that quite significantly, down to £65, if you so wish.

The Hudl 2 will go on sale in Tesco stores on October 9th.
