Tesco today unveils hudl2, a bigger, faster and sharper second generation Android tablet.

Available in eight different colours, hudl2 comes with a bigger, crystal-clear 8.3 inch full HD screen and Dolby optimised audio.

Powered by an Intel Atom 1.83GHz quad-core processor, users can enjoy fast web access, browse photos, read e-books and lots more.

The user experience on hudl2 has been significantly enhanced, according to the supermarket. Digital services such as blinkbox, Clubcard and Tesco.com have been tailored to individual user’s needs. The tablet runs on Android’s Kitkat operating system, Kitkat 4.4.2, so users can also enjoy access to over one million Google apps.

The tablet sports a 5-megapixel rear-facing and 1.2-megapixel front-facing cameras.  There is also eight hours of video battery life and 16GB memory on-board.

Tesco has worked with The Parent Zone to develop parental filters so children and parents can use one device safely. The app, which comes pre-loaded, allows parents to set up profiles for up to seven users. Each of these can be tailored according to age and suitability, including setting a time limit to pre-determine how long their child spends using the tablet.

Michael Comish, group digital officer at Tesco said, “We know customers want easy, accessible technology that the whole family can use whether working, shopping, gaming, learning or just taking some time out. Cutting-edge technology doesn’t have to come with a big price tag.

“hudl2 may be affordable, but we’ve cut no corners when it comes to performance – this is our best tablet offering yet.”

The hudl2 will retail at £129,  but Clubcard customers can also purchase it through Clubcard Boost, meaning many will be able to buy it for as little as £65. hudl2 goes on sale in over 800 Tesco stores and online from 9th October.
