TELSTRA T-TOUCH TAB
Telstra, $299, telstra.com.au
★★★ It’s small, solid, soaking in apps, and it lets the tablet-curious test this year’s must-have gadget at a discounted price. Like a gateway gadget, it gives users a taste of the tablet lifestyle through Google Android’s software (v2.1) and its apps. Telstra has also added plenty of home-grown apps to the Tab and users can display them on 10 screens. This tablet also has cameras front and back. On the downside, its resistive screen requires a frustratingly heavy hand, it can be slow and its battery does not last as long as some.
