One of the top mobile phone maker Micromax has launched a 10.1-inch tablet with a price tag of Rs 9,999.
“We launched our 7-inch device in April and sold 1.4 lakh devices in just 100 days. We are confident that the new 10.1-inch tab will also do well,” Micromax CEO Deepak Mehrotra told reporters here.
In my previous post I have posted that Micromax is about to launch two more 7-inch tabs, now Micromax CEO himself confirmed this news saying that the company will launch two 7-inch tablets this month to offer a slew of choices to the consumer.
The Micromax FunBook Pro is powered by a 1.2 GHz processor and has a 0.3 MP front camera.
“The idea is to offer customers choice. We have products across categories and price points and that will help us grow our position further in the Indian market,” CEO Deepak Mehrotra said.
Earlier this week, with the launch of its new tablet, unveiled in the United States, Samsung Electronics wants to build on the popularity of its Note ‘phablet’, and expects key features such as a stylus-type pen and split-screen function to stand the new device apart from rival Apple Inc’s iPad.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet launched on Thursday in the United States, Britain, and South Korea, has picked up positive early reviews from tech bloggers impressed with the S-Pen’s writing and sketching performance and the tablet’s ability to have two apps active on a split-screen.
