Report: Tesco's Tablet is a 7-inch Slate Called Hudl

Recently, word got out that Tesco was planning on releasing its own tablet device. Though the details were thin on the ground, the story went that Tesco hoped to release this tablet before Christmas and that it would come pre-loaded with books, TV, and music as well as Tesco apps. Today, the Guardian is reporting that the tablet will be called Hudl, will measure seven inches and will be priced to match Google's Nexus 7 or the Kindle Fire HD.

The newspaper cites sources in the hardware industry in reporting that Tesco hopes to compete with Google and Amazon while also offering customers an easy way to purchase media content as well as other goods. Considering the company already offers online shopping, owns an ebook store and offers video on demand via Blinkbox, it's not exactly an off-the-wall idea.

The Guardian reports that Tesco applied for the Hudl trademark in February for a range of different goods including screen protectors, tablets and accessories, internet set-top boxes and wireless speakers. The company hasn't yet commented on the tablet rumors but with Christmas only 125 days away, we don't have to wait too long to see if this one pans out.

    One other new Android tablet to launch this week worth considering is the Novo 7 EOS tablet for £119($189) with a key advantage is the flexibility to use it for Internet data access and voice calling through any GSM Wireless carrier... with a built-in SIM card slot that provides 3G HSPA+ connection and an Android phone SIM card maybe
    used interchangeably with both phone and tablet.

    The new Novo 7 EOS is made by Ainol Electronics, which won runner-up for Best-Tablet-of-the-Year at CES 2012 -- and this new model features an HD screen (1280x800 resolution) like the Kindle Fire tablet, along with 16GB Memory, Bluetooth wireless connection to printers and headsets, a 2 Megapixel webcam & 5 Megapixel rear camera, HDMI, Google Play access and an impressive 4400 mAh battery which truly makes a difference for extended battery life; and it works with the new ChromeCast adapter for wireless movie streaming. - One of the first online sources the Novo 7 EOS is available through is -- TabletSprint

    Seems like a totally genuine and not at all paid for post.
