Discount supermarket chain Aldi, has released their special buys and the headline release is a 7″ ‘Kids’ tablet priced at $99.99 which will be running Android 4.4.
The tablet doesn’t appear to be manufactured by Bauhn or Medion – the two manufacturers normally associated with the German supermarket chain, and a reverse image search yields very little.
There’s very little information with regards to specification in the tablet beyond the 7″ 1024×600 resolution screen, 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU and 4GB of storage but with microSD card expansion(SD card not included). The tablet comes with a rubberised case, similar to that seen recently on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids edition tablet, though with a cheaper price tag.
Software wise, it does with Android 4.4, as well as ‘Educational fun games for toddlers, pre-schoolers and older kids’. There’s also an included ad-blocker and in-app purchase mechanism which prevents un-authorised purchases. There’s even a password protected child lock and time limiter.
Aside from the Android 4.4, there are cheaper 7″ Tablets at retail in Australia, so it’s a bit of a gamble on a tablet which doesn’t even have a manufacturer associated. The manufacturer should definitely be readily apparent when they go on-sale in Aldi stores this Wednesday, so if you’re interested check it out.
