Well how about this, our trusty all-things-Telstra source has come through with the goods once again. This time confirming the availability of the following phones and tablet that will launch with the corresponding dates.
- Samsung Galaxy Ace – mid April
- Motorola Atrix – mid May
- Sony Ericsson Xperia Play – mid May
- Motorola XOOM – late May
- Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo – Coming soon
It’s good to see a confirmation of the Motorola Atrix after Telstra hinted at it a few months back. They also hinted at Tablets, so it’s nice to see the almighty Motorola XOOM make an appearance in the lineup. The XOOM will be a direct competitor against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v which is launching on Vodafone in the next two to three weeks. The Galaxy Ace, which is more or less a smaller, less powerful, Galaxy S, is the first to launch and will make itself at home as a mid-range device on Telstra. The Xperia Play (which we love!) will launch around mid May with the Atrix and sit at the high-end of the Telstra range, though we’d love to see it on prepaid for all the school kids who will love this device. Last but not least is the Xperia Neo, which our source has noted as having no concrete launch date just yet.
