While Micromax is gaining popularity among smartphone and budget phone users, it is yet to get a strong foothold in tablet segment. The dearth of decent tablets priced at competitively low price is what making Micromax play a second fiddle role in this segment. Nevertheless, Micromax is performing admissibly well in this segment, too. The success of Canvas series must have got them a serious flow of money, which they are investing in creating more captivating products. This time, a budget 3G tablet called Micromax Funbook 3G P560 has been unveiled by the Indian giant. Within a span of the week, they released another tablet. First, Funbook P360 with a single core processor was released with the price tag of Rs. 7,049. Unfortunately, the missing 3G option forced consumers to look for other alternatives. Surprisingly, Micromax came out with a tablet with 3G capability in the short span. Looks like they want to give all sorts of option to the users.
Why Should You Go For Funbook 3G P560?
Since there are many other options are available in the market, why would one go for Funbook 3G P560? What kind of features does this smart-tablet has?
- Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich OS
- 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227-A processor
- Adreno 200 GPU
- 512MB RAM
- 7-inch capacitive touch screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution
- 4GB Internal memory

- 2MP rear camera with 4x digital zoom
- 0.3MP front facing camera
- 3G support
- Bluetooth 3.0, GPTS, EDGE connectivity options

The user will be probably disappointed had they expected it to be a dual or quad core processor tablet. We’re not sure when Micromax will provide a more substantial tablet that will compete with the international behemoth like Samsung and Apple. Micromax Canvas Phablets are already giving tough competition to them, so we’re still waiting for such powerful tablet to land on the Indian shores.
Shedding More Light on Funbook P560
Funbook P560 3G is available in the black color on the leading online store. The device is already available on Saholic, Flipkart and other stores. Instead of relying on the MediaTek processor, Micromax has taken a help of well-known processor manufacture. 1GHz heart that keeps the device alive is made at Qualcomm factory. Lamentably, it is a single core processor and will miss a small amount the power drenching games and apps. Not to worry though, as most of them will still be playable on the device. The main selling point of the device is 3G capability. The 3G connectivity will let you make video calling on your device easy. This is more convenient for the businessman and normal people alike.
A 7-inch multi touch screen with 480 x 800 pixels resolution is entitled to give more than a decent performance. We highly suspect the ability to display high quality wallpapers and themes on the devices. Even, the contemptible 2MP camera doesn’t expect to replace your low-range camera also. You should not consider it as a tablet capable of shooting great pictures. Fortunately, accompanied 3000 mAh battery will ensure that your device lasts for a long. The Micromax Funbook 3G 560 is advertised to give 5 hours battery backup which is not bad in a tablet.
The price can make or break a deal in the price sensitive Indian economy. Probably, this is the reason why Samsung and Apple are still struggling in the Indian tablet marker. Micromax knows the nature of the crowd and being a crows puller company, they have kept the price of Funbook 3G P560 at Rs. 7,999.
On Flipkart the device is listed at Rs. 8499 price tag. We recommend our users to go for deal offered by Saholic.
