7" Android Tablet Available in Four Markets on Launch, Broadening Choice in a Popular Product Category
BARCELONA, February 15, 2011 - Orange today announced the launch of its own Orange-branded tablet. The
7" Android device available in four markets - Spain, Poland, Slovakia and
Romania - is lowering the entry level for tablet computing and broadening the
company's portfolio of tablet devices.
With a seven inch capacitive screen, Android 2.1 and 3G/Edge
connectivity, the Orange tablet offers portable, touch screen computing at a
competitive price. It joins Apple's iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab in
Orange's growing tablet portfolio.
Yves Maitre, senior vice president, Group Devices & Mobile Multimedia for
Orange, said: "Tablet computing is an extremely popular and growing segment
of the consumer technology market and we want to offer our customers the best
possible choice of device to suit all budgets and requirements. By providing
the widest choice of seven and ten inch touchscreen tablets, Orange is
providing new ways to access the content and services our customers want. We
will continue to expand our tablet and smartphone portfolio throughout 2011."
Each of the four markets has designed specific tariffs and bundles for
the Orange Tablet.
