Though if I were you, I'd warn him he'd get more value out of picking up an extra few Pierre Cardin polo shirts, because this PC-7006 tablet is running just Android 2.2.
It's being sold in the UK for £275 ($448), which Eurodroid commenter Simon points out is an extra £116 ($188) for the name (and case) alone, considering it's just a rebadged Dropad A8 tablet.
Anyway, it's got a 7-inch capacitive screen with 800 x 480 resolution, and runs on a Samsung S5PV210 Cortex-A8 at 1GHz, with 4GB of onboard storage. Expect to see it hanging off French men's belt-loops before you know it. [Pierre Cardin via Eurodroid]
