The Chief Executive Officer Delegate of the European carrier Orange today confirmed the announcement of an Apple tablet later this month.  In his radio interview he basically said the tablet is coming along with a webcam.  See the quick interview after the break:

"Jean Pierre Elkabbach: According to Le Point, your partner Apple will launch a Tablet…

Stéphane Richard: Yes.

Jean Pierre Elkabbach: …with a webcam…

Stéphane Richard: Yes.

Jean Pierre Elkabbach: …would Orange users benefit from this?

Stéphane Richard: Sure! They are going to benefit from the web cam, they are going to be able to, in effect, transmit images in real time. We are going to modernize, in essence, the video phone that we knew a few years ago… the size of the resolution, and the quality of the resolution will be better, and it will be available to all in France."

This confirms what we pretty much already knew, but it doesn’t hurt to have the input from someone most likely to be in the know.
