It seems operators are next in line after manufacturers to board the tablet train. According the latest bit from Les Echos, Orange France is working on a self branded Android tablet.
The tablet is rumoured to be priced somewhere around €250 (unsubsidized).
This is the second time Orange is entering the tablet arena, last year they launched the Orange Tabbee, a dockable WiFi slate with internet widgets and a 3hr battery, which was a failure. Considering the Android’s presence and cheap price, the latest tab could turn out to be a success.
