Tesco Launches Low-Cost Tablet in British Market

Britain’s Tesco grocery and retail company plans to release a low-priced tablet computer in the UK designed to drive consumers to the company’s online-shopping and digital-entertainment sites. The Hudl device runs the Android Jelly Bean OS, and has a seven-inch screen and 16 gigabytes of storage. It sells for £119 ($190), or £60 ($96) with a store shopping card. The device gives users access to Tesco’s online shopping and banking sites; its Blinkbox movies and TV on-demand service; Clubcard TV; music streaming; and e-book services. Hudl will compete with devices such as the Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7, and Apple iPad mini. (Reuters)(ZD Net)
