How low can you go? That seems to be the question that Aldi wants to ask and their current answer is a 16GB 7″ Android tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich from a company called Onix. Now the specs aren’t going to blow anyone away and a couple of the specs listed on the Aldi website are just plain wrong or listed multiple times -Dear Aldi, 800×480 is NOT HD Resolution, but for the kids, this may not be an absolutely terrible option.
Onix 7″ Tablet Specs :
- 7″ 800 x 480 LCD Display
- 1GHZ RK2906 Cortex-A8 CPU
- 512MB RAM
- 16GB On-Board Storage with microSD Card slot up to 32GB
- Wi-Fi 802.11/b/g/n, G Sensor
- 2.0MP Rear Camera and 0.3M front facing Camera
- USB 2.0
- Android 4.0
- 120(W) x 11(D) x 185(H)mm
- Available in Pink, White and Black
The other interesting part of the deal which starts on Wednesday is the fact that they have accessories available for the tablet. They have a tablet accessories pack for the Onix(pictured above) which includes a case, car charger and headphones for $14.99 or you can get a Tablet stand (pictured below) which fits any 7″ or 10″ tablet that includes an AC Adapter or can run off batteries also for $14.99.
Now again, the specs are very basic, the difference between a cortex A8 CPU and the Cortex A9 quad-core CPU in something like the Nexus 7 is massive, if you’re after a good quality tablet DO NOT purchase this one from Aldi, save for a while and invest in the Nexus 7. If you want something to mess around with this Onix tablet may not be a bad option.
