Pierre Cardin launches UK's first designer tablet
It was only a matter of time.
Dedicated followers of fashion have been snapping up designer-branded handsets since the first LG Prada phone appeared back in 2006, so designer tablets were only ever a season or two away.
The first such tablet to go on sale in the UK comes courtesy of French fashion house Pierre Cardin. With a 7" touchscreen, the romantically-named 'PC-7006' (doesn't it just conjour images of Paris?) is the same size as the BlackBerry PlayBook, although it's designer cred is marred by sub-standard innards: no rear-camera, 3G available only via an attachable dongle, 512MB of RAM, and Android 2.2 FroYo rather than the tablet-specific 3.0 Honeycomb.
