The Bauhn-branded AT-HK8 tablet is the fifth tablet device that the supermarket chain has sold in Australia this year alone.

The device has an 8in display with a resolution of 1024x768, comes with 16GB of internal memory and has a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera. It runs the 4.1 "Jelly Bean" version of Google's Android operating system.

Other specifications of the Bauhn-AT-HK8 Android tablet include 1GB of RAM, a 1.5GHz dual core processor, a microSD card slot that allows users to expand the memory, and a non-removable 3000mAh lithium polymer battery.

The device doesn't have a built-in GPS chip but includes a mini-HDMI port for connection to a high definition television. However, Bauhn does not include a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable in the box, so this needs to be purchased as an additional accessory.

As with most of its consumer electronics devices, Aldi has advertised the Bauhn-AT-HK8 as a "limited special buy" product and says stocks will vary between stores.

The supermarket chain also says that the product may sell out on the first day due to "unexpected high demand."

"While stocks last - please note stocks are limited and will vary between stores. Despite our careful planning, we apologise if selected items may sell out on the first day due to unexpected high demand."

"In the event of unexpected high demand, ALDI Stores reserves the right to limit purchases to reasonable quantities."

Bauhn provides a one year warranty with the new Android tablet, while Aldi says it will refund or replace any product within 60 days, provided it obtains a proof of purchase.

Just bought this product a few days ago. People are bagging it out on other sites (sight unseen I suspect) but I have found it to be good value so far. Everything works - it connects fine to my wireless router, and MacBook. The 2MB camera takes acceptable photos and videos. Early days, I know, but I am quite happy, especially for this price. (And yes I am more than seven years old).

Bought this tablet last Wednesday. I'm finding it has really limited battery life and i can only surf the internet for around an hour and then have to connect the charger. Is anyone else having the same problem? Also it doesn't seem to be able to pick up my router,which was upstairs and i've now moved to downstairs and it appears I have to be near the router for it to work, again
has anyone experienced this. Wondering if mine is faulty or is this the
limitation of these cheaper tablets?

I purchased two of these tablets for my children ages 13 & 9 for Christmas.
We have found them to be extremely useful & easy to use. Both tablets have connected without problems to our home WiFi & also to the free McDonalds WiFi during travel.
We also purchased the $14.99 accessories pack for travel which included a leather case.
Both tablets seem to last approx 3-4hrs of heavy internet & game usage.
In the end I find that as far as value for money this product receives 9/10 from me. The only issue being the battery life, which truly isn't too bad considering the use they are getting. :D

Same here the tablet itself is fantastic . No problems connecting with WiFi. Battery life is very limited though.

Bought 3 of these tablets and 1 of the larger ones for my children for Christmas . Have since had to return the 3 smaller ones due to glitching, they were glitching and skipping and needing to be reset constantly. Sometimes the children could play for 30 min, other times an hour and a half. they were great at the start but faded rather fast. The larger size one (9') is great and has had no problems, going to buy 3 more for the children

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
