Tesco off its trolley with rumoured Galaxy S5 rival in CNET UK Podcast 388

Could the Tesco Hudl phone win a trolley dash against the Samsung Galaxy S5? And would you bundle all your bills with Virgin Media?


Is a Hudl phone a supermarket sweep, or is Tesco off its trolley? That's just one of the many technology questions we pop in our basket in episode 388 of the CNET UK Podcast.

Speaking of phones, we meet the Huawei Ascend P7 -- and speaking of shops, we chew over the reported multibillion-pound merger of Dixons and Carphone Warehouse. Will they not stop until Dixons owns every shop on the entire high street?

We enter Virgin territory with a look at Virgin Media's new , combining broadband, landline, TV and mobile into one bill for £51. Or if money's no object, we take to the skies with Etihad's super-luxurious in-flight hotel room on an aeroplane, complete with a living room, bedroom, and your own butler to serve you as you soar above the clouds.

And we ponder whether the opposite of "A New Hope" is " The Ancient Fear", which could be the title of "Star Wars Episode VII".
