Aldi Launches the Medion LifeTab Android Tablet – $99, 7″ Screen, Dual-Core CPU

Having sold30016239_PIC-H_Dtrick_002 PCs, cameras, laptops, and even the occasional ebook reader, the German-born grocery store chain Aldi is no stranger to selling budget electronics. And today they are selling a tablet.Would you like a budget tablet with your discount groceries?

I have just learned that the Medion LifeTab E7312, which had previously been launched in Aldi's UK, Dutch, and German stores, is now available in the US with a retail price of $99. This tablet sports an unnamed dual-core CPU with a pair of cameras, a decent resolution screen, and otherwise eye-catching specs.

Like many other current budget tablets, the Medion LifeTab E7312 runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It has a 7" screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600, a dual-core 1.4GHz CPU, 1GB RAM, Bluetooth, and Wifi.

It also has a g-sensor, a single speaker on the back, 2 cameras (a VGA webcam and a 2MP rearcam), 8GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. Retail price is $99, and it's in stores now.

It's often difficult to prejudge a tablet just based on the specs, but I can tell you that hardly any tablets at the $99 price point have 2 cameras, and more than a few only have 4GB of storage. Just on those 2 points alone the Medion LifeTab E7312 comes out ahead.

But will the performance live up to the specs? I don't know, but I can say that Aldi has a reputation for providing a good value for the price. I think there's a good chance they'll keep that reputation.

  1. I bought one of these tables in December. I had trouble hooking up to WI-FI. I had a friend over last night and he was trying to
    help me but for the life of me, I can not figure out the password I used. How can I change my password? I can’t do anything
    with this tablet. We tried the RESET button on the back to no avail. HELP if you can.
    Thank you
