Pierre Cardin launches fashionable tablet

According to Pierre Cardin’s UK distributor, tablets could become seen as “cold and boring”, which is probably it is selling the elegant Pierre Cardin Tablet PC.

The £275 tablet comes with Android 2.2, a multi-touch capacitive touchscreen (800×480 pixels), video calling camera and a 1GHz processor. It has Wi-Fi built-in and 3G as an option via a dongle.

Unlike some cheap tablets, the Pierre Cardin Tablet PC has access to Android Market and other Google apps, as well as GPS and Bluetooth support.

The tablet also comes with a tailored case to protect the tablet, while the distributor also mentions the snazzy box it comes in, presumably a reference to the packaging used by Apple that often gets to be considered a work of art in its own right.
