Budget supermarket chain Aldi is really on the up and up these days, and as of next week it'll join the growing ranks of retailers offering their own tablet solution.
And true to form, Aldi's effort – the Medion LifeTab E7316 – will be among the cheapest around with a price tag of just £80.
It's not strictly an Aldi tablet, of course – the Medion name is well established when it comes to PCs, and specifically cheap... sorry, affordable PCs, and it brings the same budget sensibilities to the Lifetab E7316.
You get a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, a 1024 x 600 resolution from the 7in display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal memory, and it runs of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
There are cameras front and rear, but they offer just 0.2MP and 2MP of shooting power respectively, and battery life is a decidedly average four hours.
If you're looking for extras, the closest you'll get is having Kaspersky Tablet Security and the Softmaker office package pre-loaded.
In all it's not a lot, but then you're not being charged a lot to own one. Comparison shoppers will note the LifeTab E7316 is all but identical in terms of both looks and specs to a certain Medion LifeTab E7310 Asda started selling last month for £77.
The primary difference between them appears to be that Aldi's runs Android 4.2.2 while Asda's is limited to Android 4.1. If that's worth an extra three quid in your books, you know where to go.
