Tesco to launch tablet in time for Christmas


When it comes to Christmas shopping the Supermarkets are not slow in preparing for the onslaught and giving the customers new products to entice us to spend more cash.

Well Tesco have just upped the ante and release information that they are going to have their own branded Tablet, if the report from The Sunday Times is to be believed.

Tesco already has quite a presence in the high street with its own mobile service via the O2 network. Now it seems the retailer is looking to increase this by releasing its own tablet device, and the rumoured device will be of a quality that is similar to the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire. There is the hope that any such product with a brand name close to them the British public will be more tempted with the device.

The report doesn’t go into specific details about the features of the device, but sources are claiming that the tablet will come preloaded with applications for the retailers banking and online grocery services. There will reportedly also be apps for books, films, and music that will take advantage of its own services.

It is being suggested that the move by Tesco is an attempt to regain business lost to the likes of Apple and Amazon for media sales, and the device could be priced around the £130 mark with a release in time for Christmas.

With the release of the Nexus 7 (2013) in a few days, would you consider thinking about buying a Tesco tablet instead?
