Tesco Ends Hudl2 Tablet Offer
British supermarket chain Tesco has ended its competitively-priced Hudl2 tablet offer.
In a statement the supermarket said, "We have sold out of Hudl2 tablets and will no longer be selling it in our stores or online".
The statement continued, "We would like to assure customers that we will continue to provide technical support and help to all of our customers who have purchased a Hudl. We have no current plans to release a Hudl 3."
Tesco launched its first Hudl product in 2013, and released hudl2 in the autumn of 2014.
Tesco's former chief executive Phil Clarke had overseen the Hudl tablet’s success.
It came to market at a retail price of £129.
Tesco Clubcard members could obtain the budget tablet for around half that price.
The second-generation Android tablet boasts a 8.3 inch full HD screen and Dolby-optimised audio.
Powered by an Intel Atom 1.83GHz quad-core processor, the tablet runs on Android’s operating system Kitkat 4.4.2.
It features 5-megapixel rear-facing and 1.2-megapixel front-facing cameras.
It has eight hours of video battery life and 16GB of memory.
The Tesco tablet is now reported to be selling on online marketplaces for more than the original retail price.
