Orange launches own-brand Android tablet

Extends Orange’s tablet portfolio and supports strategy to give more customers access to the services they love across different price points
Orange Tablet is available to customers in Spain, Romania, Poland and Slovakia

Orange today announced the launch of its own Orange-branded tablet.

The seven inch Android device is now available in four markets – Spain, Poland, Slovakia and Romania – and is set to lower the entry level cost for tablet computing . Orange also stated the device is broadening its portfolio of tablet devices, which currently includes Apple’s iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

With Android 2.1 and 3G plus Edge connectivity, the Orange tablet offers portable, touchscreen computing at a competitive price, the company claimed.

Yves Maitre, senior vice president, group devices and 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.
