Aldi's sub-$200 Bauhn tablet to go on sale in limited stock

The 9.7in Android tablet will have a limited production run.

German supermarket chain Aldi will sell a new Android tablet for less than $200. The 9.7in Bauhn tablet packs a quad-core CPU, high-resolution camera and a healthy range of ports; however, budding customers will have to hurry on the day of its release as stock is limited.

The Bauhn tablet will go on sale on Saturday, 22 February. It won’t be on sale for long as the tablet will only be offered “until sold out”. An Aldi Australia spokesperson confirmed the limited stock availability.

“Our technology Special Buy products are extremely popular. We encourage everyone to head down to their local Aldi store as early as possible on 22 February.”

The 9.7in Bauhn tablet has a resolution of 1024x768 and a pixel density of 132 pixels-per-inch. It packs a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A microSD slot makes it possible to expand storage by an additional 32GB.

The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean tablet features a 5MP rear camera and a mini HDMI port enables the playback of videos on a television. To do so will require an adaptor; unfortunately representatives could not confirm if one is included.

Although the tablet features Wi-Fi and bluetooth, it is not compatible with 3G networks. This is a point of difference between the Bauhn tablet and the recently released 3G tablet by etailer Kogan, which is also priced at $199.

Aldi previously sold an 8in Bauhn tablet in December of last year. The company had forecast the $129 tablet would sell out on the first day of its release.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

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.
