British supermarket chain Tesco unveils its first tablet computer
LONDON (AFP) - Britain's biggest retailer Tesco on Monday unveiled its first tablet computer, as the supermarket chain seeks to boost flagging sales in its domestic market.
The Hudl high-definition tablet, with a 7-inch screen, will retail at £119 (S$238) and use Google's Android Jelly Bean operating system.
The Hudl goes on sale in Britain on Sept 30, and will be manufactured in China by a supplier that also makes well-known products for Blackberry, HP, Microsoft and Sony, it added.
Tesco is attempting to turn around the fortunes of its struggling domestic business, and earlier this month sold most of its loss-making unit Fresh & Easy in an embarrassing exit from the United States.
