Telstra announces T-Hub

The home phone and mobile combination device will be available this month

Telstra has launched a home phone and mobile hybrid device called the T-Hub.

The product carries an 18cm touchscreen and can be used for phone calls, text messages, surfing the Web as well as play music. It also comes with a cordless handset for anybody opting for a more private conversation.

Design of the touchpad is reminiscent of Apple’s latest tablet PC, the iPad.

“T-Hub also has mobile phone-like applications and features such as one-touch access to BigPond and Sensis services as well as popular internet sites such as Facebook and YouTube,” Telstra chief marketing officer, Kate McKenzie, said in a statement. “Customers can send a friend a message on Facebook before heading out the door or enjoy unmetered access to BigPond news, weather and sport over breakfast without having to boot-up a computer.”

The device is locked into the telco’s fixed-line and broadband networks. It plugs into a standard telephone socket and can access broadband via a Wi-Fi modem.

“We've trialled the T-Hub and some of the most popular features were handsfree phone calls from the touch panel plus local weather, sports, news and finance information,” McKenzie said.

T-Hub will be available in Telstra retail stores and selected dealers from April 20. It can be purchased in several Telstra home phone and broadband bundles for $109.
