Telstra launches T-Touch Tab
The latest tablet technology is now accessible to everyday Australians, with Telstra launching what it says is the most affordable wireless tablet from an Australian telco.

The Telstra T-Touch Tab, priced at AU$299, is a light-weight tablet that combines mobile internet, online content, entertainment and phone-calling as well as access to apps from the Android Market.

Telstra Executive Director Consumer, Ms Rebekah O’Flaherty, said the T-Touch Tab featured a 7” touch screen which delivered great online entertainment, while being more compact than a laptop.

“T-Touch Tab™ will suit Australians’ appetite for quick and affordable access to information, useful apps and digital media wherever they may be,” Ms O’Flaherty said.

“Created with Australian families in mind, the T-Touch Tab can be enjoyed individually or shared together, providing entertainment to all ages. From games that keep the kids amused, reading e-books, checking your email or catching the weather on the move, the possibilities are virtually endless” she said.

Ideal for use at home or out-and-about, the Telstra T-Touch Tab is powered by Android 2.1. With a touch screen that’s around three times larger than a standard smartphone screen, the T-Touch Tab is a great way to take e-books with you or to catch-up with friends via Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and other social networks.

T-Touch Tab lets users connect to the Interet via the Telstra Next G network, a 850 MHz 3G network.

“Whether you’re a green-thumb, aspiring MasterChef or perhaps an avid blogger, we believe the T-Touch Tab will be popular with busy people embracing technology to keep connected with their interests,” Ms O’Flaherty said

“Telstra research suggests three quarters of Australia’s hobbyists are keen to use technology – such as tablets – to help further their passion.

“Our research also has found that while many hobbyists pursue an interest for the mental stimulation, 75% wish they could better share their particular passion with family and friends.

From 2 November, T-Touch Tab will be available from most Telstra Stores, Telstra Licensed stores, selected retailers and online. The T-Touch Tab can be purchased for AU$299 (Pre-Paid) which includes 3GB of data to get customers started and AU$10 worth of start-up Talk/Text credit to put towards standard national calls and SMS/MMS to use in Australia in the first 30 days.
