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.

According to the Pierre Cardin website, "the Pierre Cardin Tablet PC is perfectly sized to fit in the palm of your hand yet practical enough for life on the go". Although that said, it's also hardly a size-zero model, measuring in as it does at a hefty 1.4cm thick, compared to the iPad's 8.8mm.

The Pierre Cardin tablet is available for £275 (including that natty leather case).
