Optus to launch low-end Tablet ‘My Tab’ for $279, will rival ‘T-Touch Tab’

Not only is the war between Carriers being played out with the Galaxy Tab, it’s also beginning to take place in the low-end Tablet market. Telstra launched their T-Touch Tab, a re-branded Huawei S7, not even a month ago and already Optus is jumping on the bandwagon with the announcement of the Optus My Tab which will retail on Optus Prepaid for $279, with post-paid plans to be announced closer to launch date in December. The My Tab will be manufactured by ZTE, we suspect a re-branded ZTE X9, and has the following action packed features.

  • Android 2.1
  • 7″ resistive display
  • 3MP camera
  • 2GB MicroSD included, but expandable
  • WiFi b/g
  • 3GB of data on purchase

Not many other specs have been released by Optus, but when they are we’ll let you know. Now let’s sit back and watch the Tablet wars begin.

Update: A CGI version of the Optus My Tab has been released

      And yes, they do. They’re even worse at Photoshop than I am.

    I think this one is better than the T-Touch Tab, ZTE have ‘promised’ a 2.2 upgrade, Huawei has not.

    My Tab has 3400 MAh battery – trying to find T-Touch Tab battery specs- any ideas?

      T-Touch Tab is 4000mAh

    Any idea on screen res and colour depth? I can’t stand larger screens that remind me of playing DOS games on an old 486. Mind you, I did much enjoy those games… just trying to illustrate a point. :-)
