Micromax Funbook Pro – Education + Entertainment
After the launch of the first Funbook in India, various other versions of the 7 inch tablet have been launched by Micromax. However, Funbook Pro is a 10 inch tablet launched by the manufacturer targeting customers with a low-budget but in look for a decent android based tablet.
Let’s have a look at the tablet’s specifications. It has a 10.1 inch capacitive touch display screen with 1024 x 600 pixels resolution. Though there is no camera on the back, there is one on the front for video calling needs. The tablet runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and also there are a few pre-loaded apps from the play store. There is a lot of educational applications and content present in the tablet. However, one strange observation is that it does not have the default Android gallery application. All the media opens with a 3rd party application called Super HD Player. For consumer’s processing needs, there is a 1.2 GHz processor and a gigabyte of RAM. Though this is a big improvement from the original Funbook, it doesn’t live up to expectations. There is 8 GB internal memory available and the tablet supports microSD expansion.
Funbook Pro lacks Bluetooth and GPS, making the major negatives of the tablet. It has other connectivity options like 3G, microUSB post and Wi-Fi. It is backed up by a 5650 mAh battery giving enough power to run the tablet for about 7 hours in normal usage. The Micromax Funbook Pro can be bought for Rs. 10,000 in India and it looks worth it for a multimedia device.
