Orange is launching a branded Android tablet, following strong sales for its affordable smartphones running Google’s OS.
Dubbed the Orange Tahiti, the slate is powered by Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) and features a seven-inch multi-touch LCD screen, which puts it at the smaller end of the tablet-smartphone spectrum.
It’s also home to a dual core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, as well as a five-megapixel camera, AGPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G support.
Orange is offering the Tahiti for an upfront fee of £69.99 when you sign up for a 24-month plan at £25 per month. That gets you 1GB of data every month, plus a further 1GB to be used between midnight and 4am.
Alternatively, you can grab the tablet for free, plus the San Francisco 2 budget Android smartie, if you sign up to for a two-year 'Connected' deal at £41 per month.
This includes 2GB of date per month that can be used on either the Tahiti or the San Fransciso 2, plus 200 call minutes and unlimited text messages.
Paul Jevons, Director of Products and Devices at Everything Everywhere, said: "We’re pleased to be expanding our portfolio of own-brand devices into tablets for the first time.
“The Tahiti is a stylish, lightweight device with a great quality screen, which we believe really does offer great value innovation and will help customers to get the most out of their multimedia content whilst on the go."
