The top 10 iPad alternatives

When you’re in the market for a new tablet it might be easier to go out and pick the iPad because it’s well known, but it’s not the only tablet out there. In fact, the tablet market is so vast and varied there are an awful lot of excellent tablets out there for you to choose from. So if you’re not going to go out and buy an iPad, what are your alternatives?



1. Best on a budget: Tesco Hudl, £99

At the low price of £99 you might expect the Hudl to be awful and not worthy of your time, especially since it’s made by Tesco. That’s not the case, and the Hudl is possibly the best sub-£100 tablet that you can get your hands on right now. It’s not got amazing life changing specs, but for £99 it’s definitely value for money.

The Hudl comes with a 7-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, microSD expansion, Micro HDMI output, and runs on a stock version of Android Jelly Bean. It’s also available in a number of different colours, and the fact that you can pick one up during your weekly shop is an added bonus.
