From The Guardian:
Tesco has said that an updated version of its surprise hit tablet computer, the Hudl, will be launched in 2014.
“The new model will be an enhanced version,” said Tesco’s chief executive, Philip Clarke.
He also announced that Tesco had sold more than 35,000 Hudl tablets within the first few days of the launch, and has sold more than 300,000 to date, “more than we had originally planned in total in the run-up to Christmas” according to Clarke.

Chief digital officer at Tesco, Michael Comish, admitted that Tesco had struggled to maintain stock of the tablets saying, “they are flying off the shelves so quickly, it has run out of stock twice”.

But the Hudl represents more than just a single product to Tesco, it is an entry into consumer homes, something other retailers like Amazon are using to great effect.
“Tesco will be acutely aware that Amazon is using its Kindle Fire tablets as a direct means to deepen its relationship with its customers,” said Wood. “Tesco must address this quickly and develop Hudl into a direct channel that links into its numerous other assets such as the Clubcard and Blinkbox.”
