Tesco not launching smartphone after all

9 September 2014

hudl You remember a few months ago when we excitedly told you of Tesco launching a Hudl smartphone?

Well, cancel that all-night vigil party because Tesco now can't be arsed.

Instead, the company are pouring their efforts into making the Hudl 2 as amazing as possible.

According to Robin Terrell, the supermarket’s multichannel director: “The technology sector is fast changing and constantly evolving and since then, the mobile market has become even more competitive. So in early July, I took the decision that we would put the phone on hold and concentrate on the Hudl 2 tablet.”

“Mobile technology – phones and tablets – are transforming all consumer industries and particularly retail. Our future success relies on our anticipating and adapting those consumer trends so that we can continually improve the products and services we offer our customers.”

The Hudl 2 is promised in the next few weeks, which is conveniently handy for Christmas.
