Will Tesla cars be illegal in Australia?

I was chatting with my folks about the laws recently introduced here in Australia where it's illegal to use a mobile phone unless it's hands free, or text whilst driving etc. The horrible thought occurred to me that the interactive pad mounted on the dash of the Tesla Cars may make it illegal in Australia.
Does anyone think this could happen? (Gawd I hope not).

We have the same rules here in our State in the US. That is why the phone access via Bluetooth in the car is hands free. There is no access to texting services. Everything else is big buttons, monitors and voice commands.

It would be nice to access more on the internet while in Park. It would be nice to access weather videos and other handy resources when riding shotgun too, but video streaming is essentially disabled.
