Telstra aims to have its first high-speed LTE 4G mobile handsets and tablet computers on the market before the end of March next year. They will include an HTC handset, and follows follow last September’s launch of a Sierra mobile dongle for linking notebook computers to the new network.

Telstra innovation, products and marketing manager Linda McGregor let slip the timetable at an LTE launch in Armidale and Tamworth where she said the towns are the first outside capital cities to get 4G as part of Telstra’s rollout to 80 regional centres by the end of the year.

“Customers snapped up 4G dongles on the day, and look forward to the first 4G handsets coming into store in the first quarter of next year,” McGregor said in a blog.

At the dongle launch in September executives said the HTC handset – then promised for the first half of the year – would have a 4.5-in. screen, a dual-core processor, a high-quality 8 megapixel camera and operate on Android software.

Telstra networks chief Mike Wright appeared to confirm the timetable at a conference on Friday where he said: “We’ll be bringing handsets into the market early in the new year.”

Telstra also revealed that there would be other contenders besides the HTC device at the time of the launch.
