Orange has followed up its own-brand Android smartphones with the release of Android Tablet. Called Orange Tahiti, operator’s first own-brand tablet device, is a rebranded Huawei MediaPad – which is sold in the US as the T-Mobile Springboard.
The Tahiti runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb, a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and comes with a 7 inch multi-touch LCD screen (1280 x 800 pixels), Wi-Fi, GPS, HSPA+ 3G, Bluetooth and 3.5mm headset jack.
Weighing 390g, the tablet also integrates a five megapixel camera for capturing video and still images. It has a micro SD slot for storage expansion, HDMI video output and is powered by a 4000mAh lithium polymer battery.
The Tahiti will be available with a slate black and silver finish. As Huawei is updating MediaPad to Android 4.0, we expect that Orange too will release the update for Tahiti.
The operator plans to sell the tablet for £69.99 (approximately $108) on a £25-a-month ($39) two-year data plan contract, which will include 1GB of anytime data, 1GB of ‘quiet time’ data and unlimited WiFi hotspot access each month.
Alternatively, consumers will be able to get a free Tahiti tablet when they sign up for the Orange San Francisco 2 Android phone for £41 ($63) per month. This contract comes with 2GB of data, which can be used across either device over the two-year contract period.
