MICROMAX FUNBOOK TALK
It is easier to brush aside homegrown innovation, but Micromax has grown into a reliable brand with sturdy devices and it is hard to ignore its latest tablet offering. The Funbook Talk (P350) is a 7-inch tablet in the Funbook series and will certainly delight first-time tablet users. Just like Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, Funbook Talk also allows users to make voice calls that is a definite plus point for many users.
This 7-inch tablet PC, running on Android Ice Cream Sandwich version and sports a capacitive TFT LCD display with pixel dimensions of 800x480, may not be the best in class, but remember the price tag and these will seem like minor issues. Further, Funbook Talk is powered by a 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM, and has 4GB of internal memory. Users can use a microSD to expand the memory capacity to up to 32GB. Funbook Talk also comes packed with a 2800 mAh battery which gave us a browsing time of a little over five hours.
While hardware specifications may not be worthy of boasting about, but should suffice for average browsing or media consumption apps. It also supports USB dongles to surf internet on 3G speeds.
Moving between apps seems to be a less-than-smooth operation, but speed is not why people will buy the Funbook Talk. It is affordability and the free pre-bundled array of apps that Micromax provides that shine through. Being part of Micromax’s Funbook family, the device is pre-loaded with educational apps and data for primary-undergraduate students along with sample papers for engineering, medical and MBA entrance exams.
Overall, Funbook Talk does not hit too many performance highs, but if you want a reliable Android tablet PC for younger family members and a secondary calling device for the family then Micromax Funbook Talk is hard to skip by.
