Not everyone will be familiar with TESCO, a UK based retailer that started as a supermarket chain. However, the company is the second biggest retailer in the world behind Walmart and has branched out into consumer electronics. Last year the company's budget Hudl tablet caused a stir in the UK and Europe because of its decent quality and because it was very affordable.TESCO is now returning just in time for the Holiday Season with the Hudl 2, a sequel to the first incarnation of the product. The original Hudl sold well, but it was a bit of an ugly old thing and its specs are starting to get dated, even considering its modest price. The newer version seems more in keeping with what is happening at the entry level at the moment. It gets an Intel Atom quad-core 1.83GHz processer with 2GB of RAM, which is a significant bump over the very modest Rocketchip ARM processor and 1GB of RAM in the original model. Elsewhere the Hudl 2 gets an 8.3 1080p Full HD screen, 16GB of storage with a microSD card slot, and stock Android 4.4. TESCO has been pretty aggressive here because this is a much better package than last year and with a price of just £129 this is something of a bargain. And on top of that, this is just a better looking slate too, while TESCO hardware is normally well built and the company offers robust guarantees and customer service. The Hudl 2 may not have the branding of your favourite tech company, but this is a compelling choice for those looking for a budget slate this Christmas. source: Android Police
