Pierre Cardin Tablet – the devil wears Android

Pierre Cardin Tablet, in leather case

If being (allegedly) fashionable is more you than being cutting edge tech, then the Pierre Cardin Tablet might be the tablet to complete your look.

Not cutting edge? No. It’s only running Android Gingerbread (Android 2.3), it weighs a relatively hefty 520 grams, and the onboard storage isn’t exactly huge. On the plus side, it…. ummm… it… says Pierre Cardin on the box, and on the leather (?) tablet case.

The Pierre Cardin Tablet has a UK price of £299.
