Our own detective work leads us to think the device is a rebranded Huawei MediaPad (this is unconfirmed however), which gives us some additional information such as the fact it has a unibody aluminium chassis, is just 10.5mm (0.4 inches) deep and weighs approximately 390g. According to Huawei the MediaPad supports 1080P full HD video playback and features a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, while the 5 megapixel auto focus rear facing camera has HD video recording capabilities. Connectivity is provided by With HSPA+ 14.4Mbps and high-speed WiFi 802.11n support.
We've asked Orange for more information on the tablet (including whether a prepay release is planned) as well as a review unit, so watch this space for further information! A little more detail and some additional pictures are also available on the Orange website.
Edit: It's definitely a Huawei MediaPad! Further information / pictures are now available on the Orange Press Site.
