Tesco has proved it can compete with major tech brands with the success of its hudl tablet, and it has now launched the hudl2. Powered by an Intel® Atom™ Z3700 series processor, the low-cost device runs on Android KitKat 4.4.2 and gives users access to over one million apps available on the Google Play store. For developers, this represents a huge opportunity to get your apps in front of the growing user base choosing Intel-based mobile devices.
So if you’re hoping to get a piece of the hudl2 action, it’s important to test your apps to make sure they perform well on Intel architecture. The Intel Developer Zone has plenty of resources to help with this. The Intel® Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (HAXM) enables faster, smoother testing and debugging of your applications, and you can check out some of the testing services that Intel recommends. There is also help available if you need to port an NDK Android app to the Intel architecture-based device.
Of course, nothing beats trying out your app on the device itself so if you’re attending Droidcon London this month, be sure to come down to our hudl2 demos so you can test it out for yourself. We’ll also be holding a raffle at the Intel Developer Zone stall and giving away a hudl2 to the lucky winner. See you there!
