The designer part comes courtesy of stylings and a nice leather case bearing the Pierre Cardin label, and though we're firm believers that beauty only goes skin deep, we have to admit we wouldn't mind of one these babies stashed away in our Mobot satchel.
So what sort of beast is lurking underneath? A fairly decent one, if the specs are anything to go by. We start with a 1GHz processor to drive the procession, and that's accompanied by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory.
The display is a 7in panel with a resolution of 800 x 480, while you also get the likes of a mini-USB port, HDMI out, 720p video playback support, and of course Wi-Fi. 3G networking support can be added via a dongle.
We're a bit disappointed to hear it's only Android 2.2 Froyo on board, but still – you can always have everything you want in life.
So what will one of these babies set you back? Surprisingly little, as it happens. Pierre Cardin is selling the slates exclusively, and has slapped a not-unreasonable price tag of £275 on its well-groomed gadget.
