Aldi has sold 4 Bauhn tablets previously, three 10″ models and a 7″ model all of which have proven to be hard to find at, or soon after going on-sale, so they have a good history of sales with the brand.

The pack will sell for $19.99 and advises that the case is suitable for 10″ tablets and with the Bauhn 10.1″ Android Tablet.

Lastly, a tablet makes for the perfect companion device for long car trips and on-sale is a Tablet Car Headrest Mount. The mount is universal and supports 7″ to 10″ devices including the Bauhn tablet. The mount connects to the headrest of the seat in front and has adjustable sliders to secure the device.
Great to see accessories being thought of again by Aldi and the inclusion of a more mainstream CPU from Bauhn is excellent.
