resolution? battery life?

A 7" tablet for (minimum) £670 - who are they kidding?

Will Orange still fill it with crudware

Useless apps you can't remove, games and apps trials you can't remove, Orange stickers.

+1 on the SanFrancisco, by the way, but only once rooted and re-ROM'med

So Orange want you to spend £550 on an 8GB 7 inch tab?

You can pick up a rolling 1 month 3G data contract for about £5, so the rest of that £25 is paying for your subsidy. An unlocked 16GB 3G iPad is £499, why would you want to pay extra?

..."Android Honeycomb 2.3 operating system"

Which is it, Gingerbread 2.3, or Honeycomb 3.x?

WiFi

And no WiFi.....so if you live in a place like me with a very poor phone signal, you cannot use you home WiFi to get a connection......

Orange have gone down hill fast in the last few years on many fronts.

It's Orange so it will be stuffed full of crap and worth about a quarter of what you actually end up paying for it. Oh and you better hope it doesn't pack up after 6 months coz you will end up paying to get it fixed.
