Orange CEO Delegate, Stéphane Richard, in charge of operations in France, let go a bit of a bombshell when asked by a reporter whether an Apple tablet would be announced before the end of the month he responded, “yes.” Now, our French is a bit rusty, but AppleInsider is reporting a portion of the translation as such:
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!
Richard hasn’t really admitted to the tablets imminent release, however, by not outright denying the rumored tablets existence he has set off of firestorm amongst Apple fans. For those of you who do speak French we have the video queued up for you after the break. Let us know via the comments if we missed anything.
