The Telstra T-Touch Tab won't win any design awards, but the device feels sturdy enough and reasonably well constructed. Despite its obvious shortcomings, the Telstra T-Touch Tab is a reasonable multimedia device and Android is far less restrictive than Apple's iPad/iPhone platform. While the Dell S...

The Telstra-T-Touch Tab still isn't worth its cheap price

from CNET

The great disclaimer we could apply before each of our criticisms is: "it's just $300". It's true that you can buy this tablet subsidised through Telstra for a third of the cost of an iPad or Galaxy Tab, but comparisons aside, is this AU$300 well spent?

To achieve a budget price tag for a 7-inch Android tablet, corners are going to be cut, but when these cut corners are in fact the cornerstones of the user experience — the touchscreen input and the battery life of the device — you have to ask yourself if this is a device you are going to get a lot of use out of....

It's one thing to save AU$600-AU$700 buying a cheap tablet, but it's still a waste of money if you grow tired of struggling with the clunky input and decide not to use it after a couple of weeks.

The Telstra T-Touch Tab won't win any design awards, but the device feels sturdy enough and reasonably well constructed. Despite its obvious shortcomings, the Telstra T-Touch Tab is a reasonable multimedia device and Android is far less restrictive than Apple's iPad/iPhone platform. While the Dell Streak and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab could be considered competitors, their higher price means the T-Touch Tab is effectively alone as an affordable, entry-level tablet that doesn't skimp on too many features.
