Share:

Rumour bombshell coming up!

Stéphane Richard, a France Télécom and Orange executive, has practically confirmed the existence of an Apple Tablet during a radio interview. The exec even notes that the tablet will come with a webcam to shoot realtime video. Check out the interview below (translated by AppAdvice):

Jean-Pierre Elkabbach: According to weekly Le Point, in a couple of days Apple will be launching its tablet computer …
Stéphane Richard: Yes.
Jean-Pierre Elkabbach: … equipped with a webcam.
Stéphane Richard: Yes.
Jean-Pierre Elkabbach: Are Orange customers going to be able to enjoy it?
Stéphane Richard: Of course!

Take a look at the video below for more:

So, confirmed tablet or overzealous exec?

**Edit** Orange has responded to the video above:

“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”

Could this be Apple’s PR machine working behind the scenes again? Slowly revealing tiny tidbits of information overseas, and in another language?!

    Orange PR’s words:

    “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.”

    I'm worried that this means we won't see a front facing camera on the next iphone. Maybe the tablet is Apple's solution to mobile video conferencing and not the iphone?
