Micromax, once known for manufacturing mainly mobile phones and tablets entered the Television segment some time ago. Today, Micromax entered the Laptop-Tablet Hybrid segment with its new “Micromax Canvas LapTab” which features Windows 8.1. Micromax launched this LapTab at a price of Rs. 14,999 and it will be available exclusively on Amazon India starting May 6.
With the launch of this LapTab, Micromax has indicated their entry into the World of Personal Computing. Micromax will be manufacturing Pure Laptops and Pure Personal Computers very soon in India, thus extending their market in the PC segment as well. Micromax is already a household name in India and with this move they are certainly capturing some success in advance.
The Canvas LapTab features a 10.1-inch IPS display with a WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) resolution. The 2 in 1 LapTab is powered by Intel Atom Z3735F processor clocked at 1.83 GHz. The Intel processor is coupled with 2 GB DDR3L RAM. The LapTab runs on Windows 8.1 OS which will be upgradable to Windows 10 when Microsoft will launch it later in the year.
This Canvas LapTab sports a 2-megapixel fixed-focus rear and front camera. The device is equipped with 32 GB of internal storage which is also expandable via Micro SD card. The LapTab users would additionally get 1 TB of cloud storage on Microsoft’s OneDrive service. The LapTab is backed by 7700 mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 10 hours of usage.
The LapTab offers one year of free subscription for Microsoft Office 365 Personal apps. It also houses dual speakers placed either sides on the rear panel. It weighs 1.1 Kgs, so not a very heavy device. It has a built-in slot for SIM which supports 3G connectivity. Other connectivity options include a Micro-USB on the tablet side and a USB port on the keyboard side.
In a wide range of Laptops and Convertible Laptops already in the market from big names like HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus etc, Micromax has a long way to go. Though this first LapTab from Micromax seems to be pretty good targeting students and freshers. At this price point this LapTab is a cool choice to go for.
