Micromax Canvas Tab P650E and Funbook Ultra HD P580 launched for Rs 8,999 and Rs 11,990

Micromax has just launched two budget tablets in the Indian market. The first one is the Canvas Tab P650E which has been launched for Rs 8,999 and is the first tablet with CDMA support in the Canvas series of tablets. The second one is the Funbook Ultra HD P580 which has been launched for Rs 11,999 and will be the flagship tablet in the Funbook series. Let us take a look at the specifications of both the tablets.

Micromax Canvas Tab P650E


  • 7-inch capactive display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels
  • 1.2 GHz quad core processor which we believe is a Mediatek unit
  • 512MB RAM
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the same according to us is simply unacceptable because every budget tablet runs on at least Android 4.2 these days.
  • 2MP primary camera without flash and VGA front camera for video calling
  • 4GB internal memory out of  which 1.9GB is available
  • microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB
  • CDMA voice calling connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and GPS with aGPS
  • 3000 mAh battery which will last you about 5-6 hours of continuous usage in all likelihood
  • Rs 8,999

Micromax Funbook Ultra HD P580


  • 7.8-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
  • 1.2 GHz quad core processor which is a Mediatek unit found in almost every budget quad core device
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 8GB internal storage out of which about 6GB which be user available
  • microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB
  • 3G support via SIM card and calling capabilities, Wi-Fi,  Bluetooth 3.0 , GPS with  aGPS
  • 3600 mAh battery
  • Black and White colour options
  • Rs 11,999

Both the tablets have gone on sale on various e-commerce websites and their official launch seems just around the corner. They are good devices but the Nexus 7 (2012) somehow makes a lot more sense than any other budget tablet seeing the fact that it costs similar.

Please don’t buy these chip Chinese products, after sales service is very bad. I own a tablet of Indian seller (iball) and after I broke my touch screen by accidently drop, I took my tablet to service station. They said me it will take touchscreen to replace 15 days but at this time it already passed 3 months and they told me to wait for again 1 month. This is for paid service i.e out of warranty. My other experience with my friend’s Karbonn ( in warranty) partially working touchscreen, they are replacing since 6 months. ha ha ha .… Read more »

@upesh Buying a device from a local manufacturer is like a lucky draw.If your luck happens to be good,you may get a fully woking device and if its bad you may get a faulty device.But you really cant blame the local manufacturers,just like telecom even in the tech industry quantity and quality vary inversely.Companies like mmx,xolo,karbonn etc are already giving a lot for the amount we pay them,so its but obvious that after sales service and quality cannot be as good as Samsung,Sony,Nokia et all.But one thing which cannot be denied is that these local companies are actually improving in… Read more »

The mmx tab P650E is a good device.If you ask me mmx has actually made a good decision to go with Android 4.0 ICS on P650E rather than Android 4.2 Jelly bean because Android 4.2 Jelly bean consumes a lot of memory and 512 mb of ram is simply not enough for Android 4.2 Jelly bean.Android 4.0 ICS consumes lesser memory compared to Android 4.2 Jelly bean.Apart from this CDMA support makes the tablet stand out in the crowd.Mmx for sometime has become serious about CDMA and its good because there are still several people who use CDMA and budget… Read more »
