Tablets come in all shapes and sizes, but if you’re too fussy about what brand you are purchasing, you might be interested to learn the UK budget supermarket chain, Aldi, has launched their own Android tablet which is priced at around $131 after conversion. It seems that the low price point was a hit amongst customers as there have been reports that there were long lines of customers who couldn’t wait to get their hands on the device, with one outlet at Old Kent Road in South London reporting that hundreds of customers “battled” it out for their remaining 12 units.
Dubbed the Medion Lifetab tablet, Aldi’s offering will feature a 7” 1,024×600 display and 8GB of storage (expandable via microSD). It will also feature a quad-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz, although it was not mentioned who is the company responsible for said chipset. It will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, a 0.3MP front-facing camera, a 2MP rear-facing camera, and will come bundled with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and include Kaspersky’s Tablet Security app. Doesn’t seem too bad, does it? Granted its design isn’t exactly sleek, but we suppose it will be more than adequate at getting the job done.
