Who would have thought that a supermarket chain will launch a tablet computer? Well, Tesco just made a brave move with its announcement of their new product, the Hudl tablet. It takes a lot of confidence to take a well-known grocery chain brand into the tablet battle arena. However, Tesco is pretty sure that their shoppers will patronize their new kind of product. So instead of enticing shoppers with their farm-fresh goods and other grocery items, Tesco will now have something new to offer to its patrons.
Tesco to Present a Strong Entrance With an Impressive Tablet
Tesco is really serious about their entry to the tablet wars. They have prepared a pretty handful of good specifications for their new tablet. The Hudl tablet will have an Android platform and will be powered by a 1.5 Gigahertz processor. Aside from that, it will also have a high definition screen and an expandable memory. They are making sure that consumers will feel that their company is really serious about the new investment they are making. It will also try to make a notable product from a not-yet-recognized tablet brand. With these specifications, it will be pretty impressive and competent for a tablet in a £100-£200 range. The Hudl tablet is expected to be pegged at a price of £119 and will battle against famous tablets like Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7 that also belong in the same budget range.
More Companies Trying to Join Tablet Race Signify Growing Market
What makes this new venture from a supermarket chain interesting is its implication that tablet sales are really trending nowadays. Tablets are rapidly becoming everyday devices for people such as mobile phones. In a just a span of three years since Apple introduced the first tablet they called iPad, more and more companies are now following the trend and investing into the tablet market. More budget tablets are also coming out to support the exodus of former PC users into tablets. More tablet brands offer really cheap products resulting to more entry-level customers to purchase their products. Tablet newcomers are hesitant to make products on the high-end level because of the two dominant players, Apple and Samsung. Many have seen the brave move of Microsoft to plunge into a battle with these two tech giants but known PC giant eventually failed to grab a significant share of the limelight.
