French Telco manager confirms Apple tablet – (U) dementi

Stéphane Richard, “number two” of French Orange telco, confirmed “launch soon” of Apple’s tablet device (iSlate, iPad or what so ever), and that it would have a webcam, reports. Seems that it might come with a contract of that telco, by that reducing the price. Open question: Will it have a bundle of news (sites, paper journal) subscriptions, e.g. for special editions of sports magazines, news portals like,, integration of reader reporter features… Time will tell – soon.

US translation by Techcrunch:France Télécom / Orange Exec Confirms Apple Tablet Is On The Way


paid:content:UK now reports that there was no confirmation:

But it was nothing of the sort, the Orange PR machine tells paidContent:UK: “A few comments taken out of context, then interpreted into English.”

A full statement emailed to us has further back-tracking: “These responses in no way reflect Orange’s confirmation of the existence of the rumoured device. The spokesperson was merely confirming that he is aware of the speculation surrounding a launch and that Orange would be delighted to have such a product were it ever to be available.”

Again, time will tell.
