Is it True ? Tesco abandon the Hudl Smartphone due to tough competition

The Tesco new Smartphone is/was meant to be similar to the Galaxy S5 implies a Full HD display, 2GB of RAM and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 CPU, as well as a decent camera – 12MP and up – and LTE-A connectivity. Release date from September 2014.

Plans for launching the Hudl smartphone have now been put on hold so it seems, perhaps indefinitely, according to Robin Terrell, Tesco's multichannel director.

In a statement reported by MarketingWeek, Terrell said that "we were confident that we could offer customers something we saw was lacking in the mobile market: an affordable, quality 4G smartphone handset".

Since then, however, a slew of affordable 4G smartphones have been launched, including the EE Kestrel and the Moto G 4G, and even more have been announced recently at IFA 2014.

The Hudl Smartphone was going to be made by Wistron Corporation in Taiwan where the Hudl is manufactured. Some people have been lead to believe the Tesco Hudl was made by Archos, this now appears to be untrue.

Who gives a ****.
Spec sounds okay so is a shame in that respect. But surely the only more embarrassing phone to be seen with than a Tesco own brand phone would be an iphone 6 :P

last year it did... I don't fancy the chances of a repeat performance this year, even with an updated model.
