Orange Tahiti review


The Orange Tahiti is a 7-inch Android tablet based on the Huawei MediaPad. A couple of millimetres slimmer than the original Apple iPad at 10.5mm thick, it weighs 394g and takes up just 190x124mm of pocket or bag space. In common with most Android...

3G, slimline design

Poor quality camera, display a real let-down

Improve the resolution and fix those tinny speakers and onscreen keyboard the Tahiti could be a tempting package; for now it’s humdrum rather than humming

Following the likes of the Orange San Francisco and Monte Carlo, UK network provider Orange has taken a step away from the smartphone scene and released its first own-branded tablet, the 7-inch Android-packing Orange Tahiti.

Zippy processor ; Stylish, well manufactured ; Speedy browser ; Strong 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity ; Comfortable in the hand

Slightly unresponsive display ; Volume control rattles ; Sluggish wake up ; Very poor inbuilt speaker ; Expensive overall

An up and down collection of hit and miss features, Orange's first foray into the tablet market is one that will appeal greatly to those with few high-end expectations of their first tablet. But it'll similarly fail to fully impress the hardened tech...

Orange offers its budget Tahiti tablet from £20 per month with 250MB of data. It's a capable, handsome and portable device, so where's the catch? Read our Orange Tahiti review to find out.

The Orange Tahiti budget tablet is a mixed bag. On one hand it’s a capable, handsome and portable device; on the other is a poor rear camera and a 24-month contract (which adds up to £480 for the cheapest option, or £600 for the more sensible 1GB...

The free-on-contract Orange Tahiti may look like a gift but you'll end up having paid over the odds at the end of 24 months. Your money would be better spent on a Wi-Fi-only tablet, especially if you already have a smart phone that can double as a 3G...

Quite nippy ; Portable form factor ; Slot for microSD card

No Ice Cream Sandwich ; Expensive overall ; Unimpressive battery life ; Lacklustre screen ; Lack of decent apps

If you're not fussy about having the latest and greatest mobile devices -- and are more of a 'quantity over quality' type person, or perhaps have multiple family members needing devices -- Orange's Tahiti-plus-phone bundle deals might appeal. But the...

Could Orange's enticing contract offer represent the future for tablet sales?

Cheap initial outlay ; 3G as standard ; Excellent, high pixel density screen

Substandard battery life ; High total cost of ownership ; Weak graphics performance

in the near future. The final cherry on top is Orange has resisted its usual habit of heavily customising the interface, so you'll find no tacky orange skins or third party app stores bogging the whole experience down. Admittedly some of the added...

Orange has done fairly well with its cheap and mostly cheerfulown-brand handsets such as the San Francisco 2, so it shouldbe no surprise that the company should try its hand with acut-price Android tablet, though it would seem to be thefirst UK network...

Low initial price, sharp 7in touch screen, 5MP camera

Chunky shape, camera lacking in features, requires additional powerlead

The Orange Tahiti certainly offers a lot for a bargain price(though bear in mind that you'll be expected to pay £25 a month fortwo years on top of that initial £70). With a sharp touch screen,fast processor and an HDMI port too, if you don't mind...

The Tahiti is the first, we suspect, of many decent tablets to be

Total ownership cost is high; disappointing battery life; slow performance under pressure

The Orange Tahiti is the first, we suspect, of many decent tablets to be available on contract. The benefits of this are that you don’t have a huge outlay to start with, yet still get decent features and 3G connections with a data contract. However,...

Orange Tahiti 7in Android tablet



This is an accomplished and attractive tablet that is easy to carry and use for extended periods. It has a great screen and an adequate camera. Though it doesn’t yet have the latest Ice Cream Sandwich software, its hardware makes it capable of the...

The Huawei-made Tahiti is Orange's first own-brand tablet destined for Blighty, and looks set to impress with its competitive spec-sheet.

At the forefront of the 10.5mm-thick tablet there's a 7-inch multi-touch LCD touchscreen, dressed in Android 2.3 Honeycomb OS. As with the budget San Francisco and Barcelona handset this will come equipped with exclusive Orange apps, including...

For £300 you can get a wifi only iPad 2 16gb model. Why would you waste your money on this whenyou could buy an apple product that runs ios plus has access to the app store and is arguably still one of the best tablets on the market after the new iPad

Android OS, SD card slot

Rubbish battery life, poor screen quality
