Telstra T-Touch Tab Android Tablet Drops Below $140

Telstra T-Touch Tab Android Tablet Drops Below $140

Here’s a prime example of the rapid way prices keep dropping in the Android tablet space: Shopping Monster is selling it for $129 (plus shipping of $7.95).

Telstra’s official list price for the device is $199, so that’s a decent saving. No, it’s not as cheap as the Optus equivalent, but stock of that seems trickier to come by, to judge by reader comments.

  • One thing I’d note, as an owner of both the T-Touch and My Tab.

    The T-Touch is a very unimpressive piece of hardware, especially the screen. Using it without the stylus is an exercise in frustration. It’s also quite buggy, generating lots of exceptions even around basic operations (esp. running market), and has a lot of Telstra “cruft” on the build which leaves little room for extra applications.

    The one saving grace is that it does have an ARMv7 processor, whereas the My Tab – which is better in most ways and can be upgraded to 2.2 – only has an ARMv6.

    And an ARMv6 cannot run Firefox mobile:

    Rather disappointed by this, as the My Tab is a far better piece of hardware otherwise, in my opinion.
