Aldi will sell a low cost 10.1in Android tablet with a quad-core processor and 3G in Australia from next week.
The German supermarket chain will stock the Bauhn-branded WL-101GQC tablet from Wednesday 5 June for $249.
The device is a limited run special and is the fourth Android tablet the supermarket has sold in Australia.
The Bauhn WL-101GQC tablet has a 10.1in IPS display with a resolution of 1280x800, comes with 4GB of internal memory and has a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.
It also has 1GB of RAM, comes with a microSD card slot and includes a built-in GPS chip. The tablet has a non-removable 6000mAh lithium polymer battery.
Bauhn will include a 16GB microSD card in the sales package. The product is advertised as offering 20GB of total storage, consisting of 4GB of internal memory along with the included 16GB microSD card.
The WL-101GQC is the first sold by Aldi to be powered by a quad-core processor, a 1.2Ghz QualComm MSM8225Q CPU. The tablet will run the 4.1 Jelly Bean version of Google's Android platform.
The device also comes with a front-facing VGA camera and will support 3G on the 850MHz and 2100MHz network bands in Australia.
Aldi is also advertising a number accessories that will work with the Bauhn WL-101GQC. It will sell a "tablet accessories pack" ($19.99) which includes a case with flip-out stand, headphones, and an in-car charger, along with a Bluetooth speaker and stand ($29.99), and a tablet car headrest mount ($14.99).
Aldi has previously sold three Bauhn-branded tablet devices in Australia.
Bauhn provides a one year warranty with the new Android tablet, while Aldi says it will refund or replace any Bauhn product within 60 days, provided it obtains a proof of purchase.
