Telstra has had a 4G network for a little while now, and Telstra have just announced that tomorrow they will be launching their first 4G tablet. While we expect to see some more 4G tablets to hit the shelves later this year and early next, the Telstra 4G tablet is an affordable and powerful android tablet for the technologically savvy Australian family.

“Given Australians’ appetite for technology we know that mobile tablets will be on many shopping lists this holiday season,” Ms Roberts said.

“We think the Telstra 4G Tablet will be a popular option, taking the latest touch-screen technology and making it accessible to everyday Australian families,”

“Its versatility is a big drawcard, providing entertainment that keeps the kids amused to reading e-books, checking email or catching up on Facebook.”

“And with 4G mobile connectivity built in, customers can watch HD YouTube clips, stream music and enjoy rich internet content traditionally confined to a PC screen.”
Anthea Roberts, Director of Telstra Mobile
