£99 Tesco Hudl 2 Beats iPad Mini 3 in Serious Speed Test

By James O Malley on at

If you want a fast tablet then it appears that you might be able to save your money, and pick up Tesco's Hudl 2 instead of the much more expensive iPad 3, according to a new test.

Which has been been benchmarking a selection of the latest tablets by speed, and it discovered that the fastest tablet currently available is the Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

There was some good news for Apple though: the iPad Air 2, its larger tablet, came second, beating Google's Nexus 9 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

The iPad Mini 3 though, was roundly beaten by the Hudl 2, ending up in 10th place compared to the Hudl's 9th. This is perhaps down to the Mini 3 containing the exact same processor as the iPad Mini 2, receiving merely a cosmetic upgrade, and the Hudl 2 being a surprisingly powerful little machine for its discount price. So if you have to pick between the £99 Hudl 2 and the £319 iPad Mini 3, this news might have just made that choice a little easier. [Which]
