It’s always been a little fun to see fashion companies release electronics under their brand names, due mainly to the fact that most of the products would be awful. Now I’m not saying that the new Pierre Cardin PC-7006 tablet is awful but the listed specifications aren’t too encouraging when you consider how much you’ll have to pay for one.
As the first designer tablet to have ever launched in the U.K. the Pierre Cardin PC-7006 doesn’t really have an appealing design. Honestly the tablet looks like one of the whitebox Android tablets you can order from eBay. Just look at the tablet below.
The tablet offers up a 7-inch 800-by-480 resolution capacitive multi-touch LCD, a 1 GHz Samsung ARM Cortex-A8 based single-core processing chip, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage, a microSD card (up to 16GB expansion), USB and HDMI ports, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, up to 720p HD video playback support, Wi-Fi b/g and Google’s Android 2.2 Froyo OS.
According to Pierre Cardin this tablet is designed to be able to fit in one hand, the tablet weights 520 g and measures 1.4 cm thick, and the tablet delivers on that.
All those main features and that portable design presented above will set U.K. residents back £275 (about $450USD). At that price the Pierre Cardin PC-7006 isn’t all that attractive is it?
