An executive from France Telecom has confirmed the existence of the Apple Tablet in a recent interview, Stephanie Richard, who is second in command at France Telecom answered questions about the Apple Tablet and confirmed that it will come with a built in web camera and a 3G connection.
France Telecom own Orange in Europe, so it looks like the Apple tablet may be sold as a subsidized device with a data plan from orange, you can see the full details of what was said in the interview below.
Elkabbach: According to weekly Le Point, in a couple of days Apple will be launching its tablet computer…
Elkabbach: …equipped with a webcam.
Elkabbach: Are Orange customers going to be able to enjoy it?
Richard: Of course!
The guys from Nowhere Else, managed to capture the interview on video, and you can check it out over at the Nowhere Else website.
As Orange in France previously had the exclusive agreement with Apple to sell the iPhone in France, it looks like they may have also an agreement to sell the Apple Tablet.
I guess we will have to wait until the 27th of January to hear word from Apple on the much rumored tablet. Lets hope if is available as a stand alone device, and that you wont have to buy one with a data contract from a mobile phone provider.
