The tail end of 2013 saw a number of retailers shoulder their way into the budget end of the tablet market, and one of them – Tesco – has revealed just how festive its foray into consumer tech has been.
Amid an infographic showing just how complete our addiction to the country's leading retailer truly is comes the figure that 400,000 Tesco Hudl tablets were sold in the run-up to Christmas Day.
The Hudl officially went on sale on September 30, and short of an opening week estimate that around 35,000 had already been sold we haven't had much indication of how it's been getting on.
But a Tesco infographic has put that right, revealing that 400,000 Hudls have been shifted in the three months since its release.
That's hardly earth-shattering, but then it doesn't need to be, since Tesco also makes some margin on all the other tablets it sells too, one would assume.
What we do know is in the five days before Christmas Tesco took a total of ONE BILLION pounds (sorry but if ever there was reason to go all The Sun in our reporting style, surely this is it) off the British public. Every little helps? Clearly so.
And Tesco clearly is happy with how its tablet adventure has gone since it's already confirmed it'll be rolling out an “enhanced” Hudl 2 at some point during the year.
