Telstra releases 3G today in Australia

September 5, 2005
Interesting that Telstra isn’t doing a big song and dance around their 3G launch in Australia today. The front page of their site has nothing on it. There is a low key 3G site that talks about "Video services on your 3G mobile".
As Telstra has bought 50:50 into the Hutchison 3G network, they will not have the immature network issues of instability and poor coverage that Vodafone & Optus will have (as did Hutchison) with rolling out their new 3G services.
Telstra are launching with 5 low end "video mobiles":
  • Samsung Z500
  • Motorola V975
  • NEC 600i (i-mode enabled)
  • Sony Ericsson  K600i

It’s a quiet consumer centric launch so far. I guess they are saving their marketing moola for the Christmas bonanza.
