In an interview with Europe 1 Stephane Richard, deputy CEO at Orange France, suggests he knows a fair bit about the gadget’s features and due date.

Jean-Pierre Elkabbach, the "French equivalent of David Dimbleby or Jeremy Paxman", asks: “According to weekly Le Point, in a couple of days Apple will be launching a tablet computer with a webcam."

Richard: “Yes.”

Elkabbach: “Are Orange customers going to be able to enjoy it?”

Richard: “Of course!”

The translation is accurate enough, but don't read too much into it: Richard's answers are terse, to say the least.

Apple has never confirmed the existence of a tablet Mac, but it is expected to announce the device in San Francisco on January 27.
