The Bauhn AMID-972XS Android tablet, on sale through Aldi supermarket stores from Saturday 8 September.

German supermarket chain Aldi will sell a dual-core Android tablet running Google's Ice Cream Sandwich software in Australia for $249, but it has warned potential customers that stocks are likely to be limited.

Set to go on sale this Saturday 8 September, the new Bauhn-branded Android tablet appears to be an upgrade of a similar device Aldi stocked in limited quantities back in June.

The previous Bauhn AMID-971R tablet, also sold for $249, was incorrectly advertised by Aldi as having a dual-core processor. At the time, PC World Australia discovered that the original Bauhn tablet was powered by a single core chip with a separate graphics processor. However, the new model (Bauhn AMID-972XS) is powered by a 1.5GHz Amlogic Cortex A9 8726-MX, a newer and faster dual-core processor.

Aside from the bump in processor, the new Bauhn tablet appears to be a similar device to its predecessor. It once again has a 9.7in display, 16GB of internal memory and a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera but does not include GPS. It will be powered by 1GB of RAM and has a microSD card slot that allows users to expand the memory.

"Enjoy the latest Android technology with the Bauhn Tablet including a large 9.7" capacitive multi touch screen, 16GB hard drive, Wi Fi connectivity and HDMI output," the product page states. "The Bauhn tablet is perfect for all your entertainment and online needs including watching movies, listening to music, emailing friends, surfing the web and using social media such as Facebook and Twitter."

Other features of the new Bauhn AMID-972XS Android tablet include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a VGA front-facing camera for video calls and a range of ports including mini-USB, mini-HDMI, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Aldi says the tablet will be bundled with a a mini-HDMI cable for connecting the device to a high-definition television and will also come with a cleaning cloth and a carry pouch.

Like the original Bauhn tablet, Aldi has advertised the new Bauhn device as a "limited special buy" and says stocks will vary between stores. The supermarket chain also says the product may sell out on the first day due to "unexpected high demand."

"While stocks last - please note stocks are limited and will vary between stores," reads a statement on Aldi's Web site. "Despite our careful planning, we apologise if selected items may sell out on the first day due to unexpected high demand. In the event of unexpected high demand, ALDI Stores reserves the right to limit purchases to reasonable quantities."

Aldi refuses to reveal exact sales figures, but it is believed the supermarket completely exhausted Australian stocks of the original Bauhn tablet in days. PC World Australia understands that many stores in suburban Sydney sold out stocks within minutes.

Bauhn provides a one year warranty with the AMID-972XS Android tablet, while Aldi says it will refund or replace any Bauhn product within 60 days, provided it obtains a proof of purchase.

Does anyone know what the battery life is like?

Ross Catanzariti

Hi TJ,

Bauhn lists the battery life as 6 hours. I suspect it won't last that long in real world use, though.

SWMBO

I bought 2 of the original ones in June and have taken them both back for a refund. I found them very slow and at times unresponsive, rather weak Wi-Fi (even when beside router), very slow to load web pages and the battery life only moderate. I'm hoping the new ones prove to be better. I will trial one for a while but if it, too, proves no good, I will return it and opt for a Samsung Galaxy. Here's hoping!

Well i got one and deems to be pretty good for the money if you need info or test email me at pharlap@msn.com

What is the battery life like ?
The specs say 6 hours but what is it realy.....

Peter Wrzos

One question from me related to 'how' to connect to internet on the new tablet? Is it only using Wi-Fi and connecting to router(s) around or... using the provided USB2.0 with a USB internet stick as well? Someone who knows, please help here. Thanks,

PunkRockDrifter

USB internet stick works, KB and mouse works. Benchmarks up with the quad cores...Great buy i reckon. Screen is well, its only let down. quite washed out and low res but what can you expect for $245.....Also not sure what battery life is going to be like but you can already control the CPU (not sure if speed or Governor) under settings.

I tried using my USB internet stick via the supplied adaptor cord, but nothing. What do I have to do to get connected? Any help will be great.

Sandra

10

How do you connect to the internet if you don't have wi-fi? Help!!!

Paul

11

Sandra You will need to get a usb wifi stick and sim...Connect it via the USB cable supplied with the tablet or else buy a 3g usb modem and connect via wifi ... Amaysim seem to perform quite well, they have plenty of pipe direct on the optus 3g network...

Paul

12

cc rider.. Use the file folder icon to navigate to the USB stick.. It takes a couple minutes to read all the files on a 16 gig stick...

I dont think the reveiwer knows what he is talking about when it comes to the Aldi / Bauhn 9.7 inch tablet.
I agree it does not have a 1gb dual core processor, It has a 1.5GB DUAL CORE PROCESSOR I also have the latest ipple Ipad as well as a arnova tablet as well as a samsung tablet and the ALDI tablet has best Graphics for a tablet otu there on the market to date. It also the best PC sync friendly tablet, it does not over heat or slow down when running all applications.
and as far as battery consumption is concerned it is also the out on the market.
Either the reveiwer did not know what to look at as far as the specifications of this product is concerned or he should look at the product properly maybe even get another job as this is not the first time he has misled the public.
dollar for dollar I personally rate this product 9 out of 10
ps I a computer engineer with over 150 qualifications.
so far as a engineering prespect is concerned I give this product ten thumbs up.

Manny.

14

Arie, Thanks for heads up however still cant get it to talk to PC all I need is to download games for kids to my PC and then move to new tablet...how can it be done.. I have read manual with NO success I await your reply...

Ross Catanzariti

Hi Arie,

I suggest you read the article properly before you publish completely false accusations.

The first iteration of the Aldi tablet (sold in June) was incorrectly advertised as having a dual-core processor. It was later proven to have a single core processor. Aldi admitted its mistake in advertising the product with a dual-core processor not long after it went on sale.

The new Aldi tablet that went on sale on 8 September now has a dual-core processor, which is clearly stated in the article.

sandy

16

Manny! Your downloaded games must be .apk files.
When you connect the tablet as a disk drive to your computer, make a folder and put the .apk games you have downloaded. Now go the file browser/manager on the tablet once you've transferred the games. Find the folder which you have transferred from pc. e.g. sally spa, click sally spa and press install.

sandy

17

Make sure in settings, you have allowed installation of third party software (that is apps not from google play market) to allow the transferred apps to be installed.

I got the new tablet. I tried most of the functions, and got one problem with the HDMI streaming. Only the video shown on my sony HD TV, but no sound. Anyone else there got the same problem? any suggestion how to fix it?

Bought one on Saturday. Happy with things so far. . . . anyone know where to get a case, hard to know if any will fit properly?

David

21

Overall happy with it but wifi is proving a problem to an Optus Netgear router. Whenever I swap tasks or attempt to open a second app, the wifi crashes and does not auto reconnect. Similar wifi freezes occur during file downloads. Fix is to manually off / on wifi which is a pain. Their warranty technical service has not been overly helpful to date.

Help still can't download apps error 101. I have a Google account Set up still unable to download apps

Was walking past Aldi and noticed these things walking out the door so I went in and I got one. Was worried at first that this impulse buy was a waste of money, but I must say for the money it does everything I want out of a tablet, it connected easily, Ive been able to download apps no problems. My only gripe would be in certain parts of my home the wireless connection drops off, these are spots where my laptop has poor coverage so I think its wireless range must not be so good. In respect to the battery life I think the 6hr as claimed is easily achieved. Happy buyer here as I was thinking of spending a lot more for an ipad

This tablet is great for surfing web ,emails ,apps so far has been worth the money ,I have tried to transfer
files from my PC using team viewer but can't work out how to do it ,possible or not ,not sure! Its also a pain to control the mouse on my tablet while remotely connected to my PC.

Anyone else tryed this ?

I hope the guy with 150 qualifications (writer would not be one of them!) is right - I just got my tablet and not sure how I feel about it - I have never used one till I tried an Ipad a few weeks ago and not used to it yet. I found the sliding and tapping/Clicking not responding too well and somehow kind of scratchy. The speed...I guess for me everything is slower than my desktop so here I'm not sure what to expect. Although I've got an HTC I still have problem using android, again one gets spoilt with proper gear on a desktop with most needed and wanted features of a descent OS. I resisted the tablet as I always thought it would be awkward to hold it in your hand and this one confirmed my expectation - so when hand held it can get uncomfortable. But I have to admit it's nice to have something that starts almost straight away (I use to love my Psion for this reason and never could accept it got abandoned, but such is life!). The keyboard is reasonable but I had trouble with input is such needs as in passwords that need to be so accurate, especially numbers, some did not seem to be registered with quick typing. This could be just me as I'm not used to virtual keyboards.
I like the idea of a mic. SD that could soon quadruple the basic storage.
I found it very easy to catch my Wi Fi and was up and running without worry to much about the manual although it was quite nice to get one. Yes $250 seems to be a fair deal so far.

I had trouble to start with kept on getting error 101 but after resetting the tablet it worked I also have a HTC which I use as a portable hotspot as well as WI FI on our PC very happy

scalter

27

Yeah I had to reset to fix error 101, then made sure I set up my play store acct before my email or face book accts', seems to be working now. Still can't get the bauhn blue tooth keypad/cover to work with it though despite successful pairing & it saying its connected :-(

Its simply the best always COOl

Hi, to fix the 101 error,you can log in with a different Gmail account at playstore (just create one if you don't have an extra one already) then log back in with your original Gmail account. worked for me and some other people I know. its a shame about the keypad, hopefully a fix is on its way.

I think this tablet is awesome...! I have used it on the internet and it works very well to my Phone as a hotspot, no problem. Including my work emails, eBay, F/B, Surfing..surprisingly quick for a non-PC. all good. Battery life has been great too. Apps work well and can download new ones with ease... Onboard keyboard types well when you get used to it. (Bauhn bluetooth keyboard won't work as it is meant for the ipad. But it is a great hardcase anyway, good for 30 bucks) ..... I just love the Bauhn tablet...!!! Kth

This new tablet mightn't be the best thing going... but I reckon for the price it is! Bought one for the missus to use in bed of an evening and she's loving it (rather than me... :( LOL). Drove an hour each way to pick one up early Sat morning with the wife... they were sold out within 15 minutes at the store I used! I whacked it on the car charger, did a little shopping, then connected to McD Wifi and my HTC Wildfire WAP no trouble at all. Within minutes the wife was surfing happily, set up a gmail account and registered with Facebook and posted a photo from the tablet as her avatar. Yep, while I'd not used a tablet before now all the children and I watch for any opening to nab it off the wife and take it for a spin. Around home is brilliant with charger at the ready and ubiquitous wifi... might be different on the road... Wife downloaded heaps of free (legal) mp3s and plugs the tablet into the hifi in the kitchen or in bed... brilliant! (The in-built speakers are minimal but adequate when no alternatives.)

I bought one of the AMID-972XS tablets. I had difficulty with getting it to read the 32GB micro SD card.
More recently, I cannot get my PCs to recognise it as a USB mass storage device. Earlier it worked fine. Now, on either a PC running XP or a laptop running System 7 all I get (when viewing the driver in device manager) A problem occurred during hardware installation with 'This device cannot start (Code 10).

I have tried to uninstall the driver --also did a full factory reset of the tablet (including data)--The PCs just will not work with the tablet. I searched the internet--why too much junk and so I have not found a replacement driver. I rang the support number--they are not programmed to respond to software questions other than to suggest 1 (factory resetting) or 2 (returning the unit to Aldi)

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks,

Lynda

Hello,
Just wanting to know about purchasing a wireless keyboard and mouse for the Aldi tablet. It appears to have the same specs as the Ipad 2 and 3 except the placement of the camera etc. Has anyone tried buying and fitting a case or a case with a wireless keyboard to the Aldi tablet? Would appreciate any advice.

I just bought an Aldi 972xs tablet. Everything working ok except for the external micro expansion slot. When a 32gig card is mounted there is a short message "preparing the sd card" and then no access to either the internal or external card files. Only when the card is unmounted do you have access to the internal card. However when connected to a PC it sees both cards and can write to and from both.
Does anyone have the same problem or can someone HELP.
Thanks

I bought one of the original Bauhn tablets (AMID 971R) early in 2012 and have been very pleased with it to date. Like some of the contributors above, I wanted to provide some sort of protection for the tablet and after measuring every possible dimension, I tried a relatively cheap cover from BigW, suitable for the iPad. It fitted well, all I had to do was cut a piece of the cover at the side to reveal the ON/OFF switch. However, screen keyboards drive me crazy so when I saw Aldi were selling a bluetooth keyboard and case today (Sat 23 Feb) I got one. No problems, it all works very well.

I wonder if it is possible to upgrade the OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Jelly Bean, or is it worth the effort? I don't have a reason to do it except being a retired electronics technician, I like 'fiddling' with things! I currently have a desktop with Windows 7, a netbook to which I upgraded from Windows Starter to Ubuntu (love it!) and this tablet.

Hi Dennis I to have a Bauhm 9.7" androidtablet model # :AMID-972XS I have also bought the bluetooth keyboard and am having the same result as you. Have reseached the net, and most comment has been negative to it's compatability.

G'day Robert,
I am calling Tempo customer service tomorrow to find out what is going on.
Will post the result

79

Gesmond, I can't get the SD card or the 3G sim to click in. The only way I can do it is by holding them in position and then re attaching the slip off slot cover which will then hold them in. Saying that the SD card then works but I have tried 3 different 3g sim cards the tablet is not recogising them at all. I planned to take it back tomorrow and exchange if there are any left but perhaps this is a problem with all of them? I assume that I shoud be able to use any 3g sim card from a phone or a wifi dongle?

Dennis

G'day Robert,
Tempo tell me that the keyboard will only work on the Bauhn tablet released last Saturday or ipad.

Return it.

Hi Dennis and Robert,
The only problem I had connecting the bluetooth keyboard/case to my 971R was I forgot to switch on Bluetooth in the the tablet 'Settings' - as is my usual habit, I rushed in after charging the keyboard and forgot to RTFM ( Read The Flaming Manual - put your own interpretation on that acronym!)

Not sure why Tempo replied to you Dennis with that comment - mine works fine.

Dennis

82

G'day Peter
I have the 972xs and had all hooked up and "connected".
Tablet knew it was there, but I could not disable the android screen keyboard.
After talking to Tempo I took it back to Aldi.
Will seriously check out facts on what Bauhn have on offer in future before buying.
(if you can get facts from Aldi or Tempo)

Robert

Thanks Dennis did by four of these as gifts etc for the grandkids who got lucky at xmas with the 972xs back to aldi they will go.

Bluetooth is SHIT on all the Bauhn products from Aldi, I purchased their smaller phone for $149 the bluetooth didn't work, then I buy the larger version for $249 and it would only connect when I took the battery out, replaced it, and turned it back on, then the Bluetooth wouldn't turn on at all, so after several days of trying I went back and replaced it thinking it was faulty and the new phone (exact same one) doesn't even recognise the the S4 Blue Ant hands free speaker.

If you're thinking of buying anything "Aldi" like this... DON'T!!!!

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
