Is BT really about to take on Apple? The Telegraph reports that an iPad-esque prototype device was demonstrated at BT's yearly strategy day in London yesterday.
The news comes as it emerges O2 will offer customers the Dell Mini 5 tablet - formerly known as Streak. It runs Android.
Most interesting about the BT news is who might be building such a tablet device for the company – will it simply be a rebranded version of an existing or imminent tablet, or completely new hardware? We'd bet the former.
The company's chief executive Ian Livingston said the new device was a cross between a PC and the "telephone of the future."
As we reported yesterday, BT also said during the strategy day that it would be launching the OnLive gaming service in the UK.
