Telstra to launch a new 4G tablet aimed for “tech-minded Australian families”.


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.


The Specs

  • 10.1 inch HD, 1280×800 resolution screen.
  • 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 1.5GHz Dual Core CPU
  • 4G Connectivity
  • A Large 6900 mAh battery, boasting up to 9 hours video playback
  • 16GB of Internal Storage (Expandable to 32GB)
  • 2 MP Front facing camera
  • 5 MP Rear camera
  • weighs only 670 grams (Slightly more than the Galaxy Note 10.1′s 571 grams)

“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

    Spec-wise it’s no stunner but less than $500 for a 4G tablet is pretty good if you really need the connectivity, considering the price of the big brand 3G tablets for sale in store at some retailers.

    • Adam Ricket

      well even with the Samsung 8.9 4G, that retails for $720 RRP

    Who makes it you reckon?

      My guess is Huawei

        My Money is on ZTE, the Telstra branded Smart Touch and Smart Touch 2 and also the Telstra Uno are all made by ZTE. They have a history.

  • Tyson Smith

    This looks like the Kogen $150 tablet. My guess it Huawei hardware.

    So…. my guess is that this would be why telstra haven’t been picking up any tablets?
    they’ve had the same two tablets in their range for so long it isn’t funny and by the looks of things, entirely to ensure sales of this

    More absolute rubbish from Telstra. T-Box more trouble than a BMW at the bottom of your swimming pool. T-Hub 1, absolute crap, T-Hub 2 just as bad.

    It’s a ZTE tablet according to their G+ page. I’m not interested, I’d have liked a new 7-inch tablet, but they probably fitted the T-Hub 2 into that slot. I’m probably going to get a 4G iPad Mini at this point, to go with my Galaxy Note II (whenever Telstra release it)

    This Tablet named as ZTE as per G+ Page. This tablet has all features but its size is really small as per the Tablets of Samsung Galaxy and Apple Tablets.
