Aldi to sell Medion Android tab for sub-$200

German supermaket chain Aldi will sell a 7.85-inch Android tablet powered by a quad-core CPU

Aldi will sell the Medion LifeTab from April 26. The 7.85in tablet has an IPS screen with 1024x768 resolution. It runs the current version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 4.4 KitKat.

Inside it has a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Aldi’s website claims the tablet supports microSDXC memory cards up to 64GB.

The tablet features a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 2 megapixel front camera, in-built GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11n and an Infrared Receiver (IR). The IR equips the LifeTab with the potential to be used as a universal remote with home entertainment systems.

Aldi’s website claims the tablet will come with 2 years of warranty coverage.

Medion’s 7.85-inch LifeTab will go on sale from Aldi stores on April 26 for $199. Good Gear Guide has asked Medion and Aldi representatives for more information on the tablet. The article will be updated accordingly.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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.
