Aldi's 9.7" Android Tablet will go on sale Wednesday 6 June for just $249

German supermarket chain Aldi will next week begin selling an Android tablet running Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich software for just $249.

Set to go on sale next Wednesday 6 June, the Android tablet has a 9.7in display, 16GB of internal memory and a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera but does not include GPS. The device will be powered by a 1GHz single-core Amlogic Cortex A9 processor, has 1GB of RAM and a microSD card slot that allows users to expand the memory.

The Aldi advertisement links to the brand Bauhn, which describes the product as "a beautifully designed, 9.7" slimline tablet running Android 4.0."

"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 Bauhn tablet (model number AMID-971R) 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. 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 carry bag.

The Bauhn-Aldi tablet comes on the back of cut price Australian manufacturer and retailer Kogan unveiling two budget Android tablets earlier this week. Like the Bauhn device, both of Kogan Agora's tablets run the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google's Android operating system.

The Bauhn 9.7in Android tablet will be available through Aldi stores in limited stocks. The company says stocks of the device will vary between stores and may sell out on the first day due to "unexpected high demand."

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
