Telstra are really affirming their status as ‘Australian Android Kings,’ with a fresh range of Android phones and tablets, as well as being Australia’s only provider of 4G Androids.
However, for any Telco, keeping on top of the device update schedule is a literal minefield. So many devices, so many manufacturers and software levels to keep track of.
And of course as, savvy consumers and users we always want our ‘Droid as up to date as possible. However, there is just so much confusion around the updates. It’s all dependant on where and when you bought your Android, sometimes what hardware revision number you have, etc, etc..
Well Telstra have come out on the front foot, building specific …
Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over! Just as we expected, Telstra has today launched the HTC One XL and answered our questions about the “One thing we have been asking for” – hoorah!
The One XL is the 4G LTE enabled version of the incredibly popular HTC One X. The only other difference is that the XL is featuring a 1.5GHz dual-core S4 processor, rather than the quad-core Tegra 3. Even though it may only have half the cores, the S4 is an incredibly powerful processor capable of handling pretty much anything that is thrown at it – including 4G LTE.
The One XL is being offered for $0 upfront on Telstra’s $79 per month Freedom Connect plan …
That’s right, Telstra is set to be announcing details on the “One thing [we've] all been asking about” tomorrow. Telstra has informed everyone via the good-old Facebook that the wait is over:
This is truly exciting as this is One phone that I know many of our readers have been impatiently waiting for. Since the One X was launched almost two months ago, it has been a long and tiring wait for Telstra to officially announce the One XL – and they’re right, we have all been asking!
Ausdroid were lucky enough to catch Telstra’s official launch video after it was accidentally leaked. Telstra seem to have a focus on the software found on the phone, being Android 4.0 ICS …
Telstra has confirmed that a Samsung 4G smartphone is ‘coming soon!’ It looks like the SGS2 4G launch is getting ever closer!
It looks like Telstra has been keeping a secret from us, and a rather big one too. About a month ago we wrote about Australia’s biggest telco releasing two 4G LTE phones and one 4G LTE tab before mid-year. Well, we’ve seen one phone and one tab so far and it looks like the next 4G LTE phone will be hitting Telstra stores come March 27th. As the title suggests, the next ‘ultra-speedy‘ mobile phone in Australia will be the:
Samsung Galaxy S II 4G
Now we know the 3G version of this …
Telstra, Australia’s only LTE-capable telco as of today is selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE variant. Telstra are boasting it can surf the web up to five times faster than its 3G counterpart.
The Galaxy Tab is expected to come in both the 16GB and 32GB configurations, which Telstra are pricing at $720 and $840 each. Although the device was officially launched today, only the 16GB model will be found in stores, while the 32GB will launch shortly.
As for data pricing from Telstra, as per usual, it’s not the cheapest route when buying data for a device. However, you are promised access to both the LTE network, as well as Telstra’s famous HSPDA+ network – which is …
Telstra seems to have undergone a metamorphosis as of late. They appear to be making an effort to appeal to the youth of today, with their new facebook page “Telstra 24×7” as their most recent endeavour. Their target audience has clearly changed, a change that seems to have occurred quite rapidly over the past few years. They seem to have caught on to the fact that the majority of their customers are aged between 17-27, or at least, this is the most impressionable age group. Why? Think about it: it’s the younger generation that are up-to-date with technology, whose decisions concerning telecommunications carriers are the most volatile. Their decisions depend on product availability, rather than data coverage and data speeds. …
