I have been using an iPad2 tablet for last one year. With all the news about the low-cost Android tablets that are out I wanted to try one. I purchased the newly released tablet  Micromax Funbook P300 (review from GSMArena) from a electronics shop in West Mambalam (Rajam Electronics & Electricals, Station Road, Chennai-33) for Rs.6699. I didn’t go with more expensive models from Samsung as I don’t see myself using an Android device for anything more than testing.


The device features Android 4.0, 1.2Ghz Processor, RAM 512MB, 4GB Storage, USD 2.0, WiFi, 2800mAH battery, 7 inches 800×480 display & Wi-Fi. You have the option of buying a Tata Photon USB Datacard at a special price and connecting for mobile data access. With the price of Rs.6699 (USD 110-120) I was surprised the tablet having a HDMI port to connect the output to your TV. Most of the more expensive tablets don’t have it. For expansion of the storage (4GB is not enough even to copy even 2 video files), I purchased Transcend 32GB MicroSD Card for Rs.1800.


I am happy with the device for the price point. I don’t see using this as my regular tablet, but I see a huge potential for the first time budget buyer. This can be a great device for Android App developers for their testing & debugging.
