MWC 2011 | French mobile network Orange introduces budget Android tablet
More corporations will be jumping in on the tablet bandwagon as another company has just announced a new tablet line at this year’s Mobile World Conference. The French mobile network operator Orange will be offering a new Orange Tablet that will presumably be able to connect to the its mobile network. In fact, the company said they will continue to expand their tablet portfolio throughout this year. Senior vice president of the company, Yves Maitre, has stated in the announcement that tablet computing is popular and growing and that Orange will be offering customers “new ways to access content and services” and the “best possible choice of device to suit all budgets and requirements.”
Detailed specifications of the device are currently unknown, but the tablet will be offering 3G connectivity with Google Android 2.1 and possibly memory card expansions with front and rear cameras, according to Pocket-lint.
Pricing for the Orange Tablet has not been announced, but Orange claims it will be budget-friendly with a competitive price when compared to other tablets such as the iPad or Galaxy Tab. So far, the tablet will soon see official releases in Spain, Poland, Slovakia, and Romania. There was no mention, however, on additional releases for the rest of Europe.
