Orange readying pre-Christmas budget tablet

Orange branded Android tablet to cost just £200

Despite offering the Apple iPad through its online and highstreet stores, mobile network provider Orange appears to be readying its own brand tablet running Google’s Android OS.

French newspaper Les Echos is claiming that the Orange tablet is currently being manufactured by a “large Asian manufacturer” and with a €250 (£205) price point will be one of the cheapest tablet devices available.

Unsurprisingly the Orange branded tablet is believed to pack 3G connectivity meaning the brightly coloured service provider can offer monthly subscription fees that would offset the low device costs.

Whilst firm specs and release information surrounding the currently speculative device are still being worked on by the rumour mill, a pre-Christmas launch has been repeatedly mooted. Hopefully this Orange tablet will make it to UK soil unlike the company’s 2009, 7-inch tablet attempt know as the Tabbeee that only saw the light of day on the other side of the channel tunnel.

oPad, the Orange tablet, OrangeZest, what would you name this mystery Orange tablet? Throw your ideas into the smelting pot on the T3 Twitter and Facebook pages.
