Orange Tahiti Android tablet

But you'll need to sign up to a two-year contract to bag this shiny slice...

Mobile operator Orange has launched its first own-brand tablet in the UK: the Orange Tahiti, pictured above, has a seven-inch LCD screen, a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor and runs the tablet-friendly Honeycomb flavour of Google's Android mobile platform.

Orange is offering the HSPA+ Tahiti for £70 on a £25 per month 24-month contract - bringing the total toll of this tab to £670 over two years. The price-plan includes 1GB of anytime data, 1GB of quiet time data (from midnight to 4pm) and unlimited wi-fi hotspot access each month.

The tablet is also available for free as part of another two-year Orange plan costing £41 per month, if combined with the Orange San Francisco smartphone.

The Tahiti shares the small tablet form factor of rivals such as RIM's BlackBerry PlayBook, weighs in at 390g and is 10.5mm thick.

There's 512MB of on board RAM, plus a Micro SD slot for expandable memory, wi-fi, Bluetooth and GPS. The Tahiti also has a Micro USB port, 3.5mm headphone jack and Micro HDMI port.

Apps such as Angry Birds and Facebook can be downloaded via the Android Market - Google's app store which now offers some 400,000 apps vs iOS's 500,000+.

The Tahiti's 4000mAh battery is good for six hours of "working time", according to Orange.
