With Micromax stealing the show with a surprise #1 position in terms of tablet PC sold in India, it’s clear that Indian consumers are more prone to budget they spent rather than considering powerful specifications. This one point is the success story of Micromax in India. Moving further, Micromax has added two new tablets this quarter in the 2013 lineup namely Funbook P600 and Funbook Talk P362. While Funbook P600 is a high-end tablet with 3G SIM card slot, Funbook Talk P362 is with 2G SIM card slot, both providing voice calling and data access using the cheap telecom plans in India.
Micromax Funbook Talk P362
Going through the features of Micromax Funbook Talk P362 tablet PC, interesting it’s the small brother of Funbook P600 which comes with 3G SIM card slot. Just like that 2G SIM card is added here providing voice calling facility along with GPRS with EDGE internet access. Starting up with 7 inches display screen which provides 800 x 480 pixels ordinary resolution, this tablet is meant for the starters. Its powered with 1.2 Ghz CortexA9 single core processor supported with 1 GB RAM, which means that it will be responsive to gaming needs and faster output.
Micromax has kept important specs at check but sadly we find that 3,000 mAh battery for a 7 inch tablet is not good enough. The battery provides a browsing time of 3.5 hours and 180 hours of standby time, but with little optimization you can increase battery life. It’s pre-loaded with several study materials and many of the entertainment apps. Funbook Talk P362 can be classified as a complete entertainment app providing you the social media need to connect your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Skype as it has front facing camera providing face to face video chat and video calls.
