Orange touts tropical tablet
Own-brand Tahiti on sale today
Orange has entered the 7in tablet market with its own, Honeycomb Android-based Tahiti.
Priced at £70 - although you'll also need to take out a £25-a-month, two-year data contract - Tahiti has a dual-core Qualcomm 8260 CPU running at 1.2GHz. There's 512MB of Ram, 8GB of Flash storage and a Micro SD slot in the 11mm-thick body, which weighs 390g.
Connectivity comes through 2.4GHz 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1 and HSPA 3G. It has a mini HDMI port too, plus micro USB.
The Tahiti tablet goes on sale today at Orange stores. ®
resolution? battery life?
For £670 over the contract life, I'm not filled with "ooh I must have this". In other news, my (Orange) San Francisco continues to be amazing for the price.
From Orange's description...
..."Android Honeycomb 2.3 operating system"
Which is it, Gingerbread 2.3, or Honeycomb 3.x?
It's Orange so it will be stuffed full of crap and worth about a quarter of what you actually end up paying for it. Oh and you better hope it doesn't pack up after 6 months coz you will end up paying to get it fixed.
