    Tesco has launched a seven-inch tablet computer called the Hudl. out 30th sept £119

    Will it be any good ? I am in the market for a cheap tablet & looking at the stuff on fleabay this Tesco offering could be a solid purchase?

    But I would need to run andriod Navigator on it so could I plug in my USB GPS _ anybody know ?:Doh:

    I don't think the full specs are out yet for the Hudl.

    Probably make sense to wait for a few full reviews to be published before making a decision.

    Looks good for the price on the surface though.

    I have just bought an HP Slate 7, 7" tablet from Currys at £99. I reckon it is brill!:thumb::thumb: dual core 1.6 gig processor, 8 gig storage + 32 gig micro sd card, 1 gig ram, super smooth motion touch screen, 168 pixels per inch, dual 3 mp cameras, wifi, bluetooth. Very fast - like sh*t off the proverbial stick.:Cool:

    The HP has good reviews and I would have preferred that to something a supermarket own brand, which have always been known for poor quality. The tablet would need to better than the likes of their vacs etc - but I feel if a supermarket has things tied into the technology...what are they going to do with it? Use it as a marketing tool?

    If they wanted to give you technology on own brand products they would have done it with Tesco desk tops years ago, and Tesco lap tops. I feel this is more a way of getting into your daily thoughts and lives than giving you technology.

    No mention of GPS in the spec on the HP website. Can you confirm? A lot of Funsters would prefer SatNav capability on their tablets.

    I dont think it has got GPS Steve. It has google maps and it finds my location. I dont know if you can add a gps app from google play

    If it can only find your location when connected to the internet then it has not got a GPS chip.

    Either way, a good tablet at a good price.
