Tesco isn't a big name in the US, but the UK-based chain is the second most profitable retailer in the world after Walmart. The company began as a supermarket, but has since expanded into general goods and even technology. Hence, the new Hudl2 tablet, a follow-up to the popular 2013 Hudl tablet aimed at families. Hudl2 is bigger, faster, and prettier than the first Hudl, and it's available soon for just £129 (about $200).
Just a few days ago, we saw a hint that Google might be ready to expand its gift card program to the UK. Today, our suspicions are confirmed as the cards have started showing up at the distinctly British Tesco grocery stores. So far the only denominations confirmed are £10 and £25, though the support pages indicate that there are some £50 vouchers running around out there somewhere.
So far, Google has only seen fit to launch gift cards in the US and the UK.
Good news for those of you in the UK; according to Engadget, you will be able to pick up a 16GB Nexus 7 from your local store on July 27th for £199, with the 8GB model being sold exclusively through the Play Store for £159.
The 16GB model will be stocked by retailers such as PC World, Comet, Tesco and Ebuyer, with contracts available through Carphone Warehouse if you can't bring yourself to splash £200 on a new tablet straight away.
TmoNews posted an image last night confirming that tomorrow, the price of the Galaxy Tab with a new T-Mobile 2-year contract will be cut to just $250 after mail-in rebate - $50 less than the current mark. Price cuts for the Galaxy Tab have been popping up all over it seems, and after Verizon announced that it'll be getting a new-and-improved 4G Galaxy Tab with a faster 1.2GHz processor, it makes sense.
