A budget $249 Android tablet running Google's latest Ice Cream Sandwich software has sold outminutes after going on sale through German supermarket chain Aldithis morning. Advertised last week as a limited run special, the 9.7in Android tablet sold out in less than five minutes at Aldi's North Sydney store in New South Wales. The store openedits doors at 8:30am but stocks of the tablet were exhausted afterjust a few minutes. A crowd of well over 100 people attempted to buy the device, butmost customers were left disgruntled and annoyed. |
A number ofcustomers were sold multiple units, in one case as much as threeper customer. "I was probably about the twelfth person here [at North SydneyAldi]," explained consumer Matt Thompson. "They told us that thetablets were racked up at the back but had them at the register. Igot all lined up and those that got in front were buying two orthree tablets each — I didn t manage to get one," he said.
PC World has contacted Aldi to clarify stock levels across otherstores but is yet to receive an official response. Aldi advertised the Bauhn branded Android tablet last week saying stocks of the device would vary between stores and that itmay sell out on the first day due to "unexpected high demand." The Bauhn tablet has a 9.7in display, 16GB of internal memory and a 2-megapixelrear-facing camera but does not include GPS. The device is poweredby a 1GHz single-core Amlogic Cortex A9 processor (despiteincorrectly advertised as a dual-core chip on the manufacturer Website), has 1GB of RAM and a microSD card slot that allows users toexpand the memory. Other features of the tablet (model number AMID-971R) include Wi-Fiand Bluetooth connectivity, a VGA front-facing camera for videocalls along with mini-USB and mini-HDMI ports and a standard 3.5mmheadphone jack. The Aldi tablet sellout this morning comes on the back of cut priceAustralian manufacturer and retailer Kogan selling out stocks of a budget Android tablet in just fourdays last week.
Like the Bauhn device, both of Kogan Agora's tablets run the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich version of Google's Androidoperating system. PC World has contacted Aldi Australia for comment and will update thisreport when we learn more. Additional reporting by Hafizah Osman.
