Telstra has released a number of new LTE devices in anticipation of Christmas demand, including its first prepaid LTE phone.

Highlight of yesterday's announcement was Telstra's first prepaid LTE phone, the Telstra Frontier 4G, manufactured by ZTE. It retails for $299, runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), as a 5 megapixel main camera with LED flash, dual core 1.5GHz processor and HD voice. It goes on sale on 27 November.

In addition to its first prepaid LTE phone and its LTE android tablet, announced last week, Telstra is introducing the Telstra Easy Touch 4G for $456 aimed at older customers with a Telstra designed easy to use customer interface. It is also available at no additional charge on a 24 month $60 per month contract.

The new LTE range also includes two Windows Phone 8 models: the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X, both at $696. These devices take Telstra's LTE range to 19. Before Christmas last year it had only one LTE device: a dongle.

Telstra has also introduced for $59 a 3G (HSPA+, 42Mbps) dongle that incorporates a WiFi hotspot capable of supporting up to 10 users.

The Easy Touch 4G features Telstra's Easy Widgit user interface that shows users what they have missed - calls, messages, reminders etc in a clear big font. There are easy widgits for phone, contacts and for messages.
