How much Android tablet does £119 get you?

We've just got done with Tesco's Hudl event in London, where the retail giant announced a 7-inch Android tablet with a quad-core CPU that'll sell for just £119. With such a competitive price, the Hudl is probably among the best tablets around this price point. The 1440x900-resolution display beats most entry-level Android slates, and the back panel is furnished in soft-touch plastic, similar to that of the new Nexus 7. As you'll see in our hands-on video above, we're looking at a relatively barebones Android 4.2 Jelly Bean experience, with some additions from Tesco. These include apps to take advantage of video through the company's BlinkBox and Clubcard TV, as well as apps for groceries and online shopping (natch).

Check past the break for more photos, and share your thoughts down in the comments.

The Tesco bloke said Android 4.2.2 was the latest version, obviously he's wrong, as 4.3 is, still that being said looks like a really nice tablet.

Yeah, probably the classic rep who doesn't know what they're talking about other than the memorised script.

Yeah, yeah. Slip-ups like that don't really bother me. Everyone makes little mistakes.

outlooker says:

Unbelievable specs for that price!

No, it's totally true! Also, her mom-in-law learned five languages, lost 30 pounds and looks 20 years younger using ONE WEIRD TRICK.

The Hudl guy says you can watch your blinkbox content "anywhere in the world as long as you've got an internet connection".

WRONG. The studios they buy their content from will not yet allow this - blinkbox content is UK only at the moment.

Just saying so non-UK buyers can't get disappointed post-purchase.

Still a nice bit of kit though!

Waiting for an Asda, Morrisons and Sainsburys version now.

That was the most British conversation I've ever heard..

Mobile-dom says:

i know :D and it was Bloody brilliant it was

speculatrix says:

You'd have thought that with Asda being part of Walmart that they would have their own tablet brand too.

ACADM says:

I bet they're going to sell a shit load of those, they'll probably stack them up where they usually have the Nook/Kindle/Nexus.

speculatrix says:

I expect this to put a big price squeeze in rival cheap tablets. The old model Kindles were being discounted by Argos, but the hudl is still cheaper than those, and the Nooks too.

It's a great time to be thinking about buying tablets!

JustJohnPaul says:

Looks great for the price though. I'm interested in looking at it.

Just ordered one and a case/screen protector. Less than £140.

Pretty happy with that, don't mind if its a 'tesco tablet'. The equiv nexus 7 would cost me over £100 more with everything I need.

Mark Gowans says:

After reading mostly favourable reviews and watching a few unboxing videos on youtube I decided to order one of these on Thursday. I ordered the blue one just to be a bit different as nearly everyone will have a black tablet :)

sejgiul says:

There is such a thing as talking with your hands TOO much...

In other news, Lidl have launched their rival version of the Hudl. They call it the "Fucso".

ambuman2 says:

I have had Hudl for a while now and very impressed.

Managed to get a program from Google Play that turns it into a 7 inch Sat Nav.

It can be used offline with Open Street Maps.

Limited Postcode search but other than that it works fine.

I'm thinking of buying the tesco hurl for my two boys ages 5 & 8 - does anything think these r good for the children? Also does anyone know if you can get the app Minecraft on them? Many thanks

That is just what I want to know too? Can you play minecraft on it? Thinking of buying it from my little boy too.
