Micromax Launches new Funbook Talk P350 with Phone Call Ability for Rs 7,249

After covering Android smartphone market with range of Android smartphones, Micromax is looking up to make its way in Android tablet market. Micromax Funbook Talk P350 is latest addition to its Android tablet series in India. If you look at specifications of this tablet and compare it with P300 then you’ll notice two major changes. One of them is dedicated SIM slot for GSM networks and other one is phone call ability.

The P350 features a dual-band GSM radio that allows you make and receive voice calls. This expands the functionality of the tablet and lets you stay connected even on the move and in places that don’t have Wi-Fi. According to the specifications, there is no 3G radio built into the tablet but Micromax has made provisions for that with support for 3G dongles via the USB port.

Tablet consists of a 7-inch capacitive screen along with a resolution of 800 x 480. The screen also has features like multi-touch, pinch-to-zoom, etc. Micromax is shipping the Funbook Talk P350 with Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System. The bundled version is 4.0.4 so you get all the enhancements and speed improvements that it has to offer. The tablet is also powered by a 1GHz CPU and comes with 512MB of RAM. Micromax hasn’t mentioned what SoC they are actually using, only that it’s a Cortex A8 core and is accompanied by a Mail-400 GPU. With this kind of horsepower on-board, we think the Funbook Talk should easily handle 720p video content, even 1080p, if it has the NEON decoding chip from ARM. There’s only a single front facing VGA camera for video calls through Skype and other apps.

However the speaker location is a big disappointment in Funbook Talk especially for any other work except voice calling. For example when watching movies or especially when playing games, in almost all cases the user’s hand will completely cover the speaker And the call speaker volume still low. The main highlight is the SIM feature but apart from that it’s the same old tablet. The tab is priced at Rs. 7,249/-
