In the last couple of months, a large number of folks were really very eager to know what are the future strategies of Indian Mobile handset giant “Micromax”. The company recently changed its logo during Asia cup this year in Bangladesh. The company has also associated Bollywood tycoon “Akshya Kumar” as brand ambassador. But, most important is that the company has entered into the Tablet business and released its first Tablet named “Funbook“. Micromax has priced the  Tablet for just RS 6,499 in order to compete all pre-existing players– presently offering Tablets at very low-price to India consumers. The Tablet is considered as a full package of a new age edutainment. Users of the device could access education contents  from primary level to graduate level. However, the price of each course materials including interactive video classes, and study materials for CBSE curriculum (from class 1 to 12 ) has been kept as of  Rs799.

The new Tablet has been designed by keeping Indian Users in the mind. The Tablet features 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 processor with 512 MB RAM and Android 4.0 (ICS) OS. Besides, It has been equipped with 7-inch capacitive touch screen with 800X480 pixels of display resolutions, HDMI Port, USB and Wi-Fi. The Tablet is available in two different colors such as mid night black and Slate Gray. The Tablet has light weight, and supports AVI, WMV, MOV, MPEG2/4, WMA, MP3, 3GP files. In addition to these, the Tablet has 4GB internal memory and support up to 32 GB microSD card. However, the Tablet does not have built in 3G, but user could use dongle to access the 3G connectivity.

“Funbook” Tablet has also front-facing camera for video chat (on Skype) or even for video recording. The Tablet is initially pre-installed with some apps including Zip, Adobe PDF, Flash, Text Editor, You Tube, Google services and more. Besides of all these, it has 2800 mAh battery of 5 hours of wake up, and also, has gravity and accelerator sensors.

The Tablet could be bought via www.ncarry.com by making full payment. However, Indian consumers can purchase the Tablet in 3 interest free EMI’s, otherwise, they will have to book the Tablet by paying Rs 500 at the time of booking and rest of cost on delivery time. For getting interactive study material, users will have to pay extra cost according to the numbers of courses issued.

Before the advent of “Funbook”, HCL has already launched its pre-installed educational contents Tablet for Indian students and professionals. This time, it is seemed that Indian Tablet manufacturers are more emphasizing on students and professionals. However, I think, Micromax “Funbook” Tablet is quite better than the world’s cheapest Tablet “Aakash” or even Reliance’s CDMA Tab in India. But, HCL’s new “My Edu Tab K12” and “My Edu Tab HE” Tablets are not vulnerable than Micromax’s “Funbook” in any aspect–these all three Tablets are running on Android 4.0 OS, 1.2 GHz Cortex A8  processor and 3G compatibility. Despite of all these, Indian folks are price-sensitive. If they are getting almost the same features and configurations at lower-price, then why should they pay more for the device? Definitely, this point of view, Funbook is dominating over HCL’s latest Tablets, however, HCL has claimed to offer over 10,000 apps for their users to access from its “HCL ME App Store”.

  1. i doubt whether the fun book can really woo Indian customers. Users are becoming more and more educated and their technology requirements are just mounting up with infrastructure improvisation. Funbook from Micromax could turn up another sub-standard tablet for lower middle class people.
