While Apple is still quiet about the existence of its long-rumored tablet (or iSlate), the device has just been mentioned by Stéphane Richard, an exec at France Telecom (the company that owns the Orange brand).
In an interview with French channel Europe 1, Stéphane Richard confirmed that an Apple tablet “with webcam” would be launched by the end of this month, and Orange’s customers will be able to get it.
Details about pricing and other features have not been disclosed, but, even so, it looks like the Apple Tablet is pretty much real and will be unveiled really soon.
There’s a video (in French) found via NowhereElse.fr, showing Orange’s exec confirming the Apple Tablet (the confirmation is after the 6:00 minute):

Assuming that Apple launches its tablet / iSlate via Orange France, it will most likely also release it via other carriers around the world, too – maybe AT&T and Verizon in the US.
