Having sold over 1.4 lakh units of its 7-inch Funbook in just 100 days, Micromax realised the need for a slightly bigger tablet . So the company came up with the Funbook Pro, a 10.1-inch tablet, which otherwise looks like the original Funbook except for the larger, heavier build.

The Android Ice-Cream Sandwich device has standard menu icons on the left bottom of the display, eliminating the need for physical keys. There is still a back key next to the volume keys on the top. Technically, the Funbook Pro can be used in both landscape as well as portrait modes, but the controls and the front-facing camera make it more convenient to be used in the landscape.

The touch response of this 10 incher is good, though we noticed a slight lag while typing. Powered by a 1.2GHz processor and 1GB RAM, the tablet performed well during browsing and while playing casual games. But we realised that this tablet is not meant for heavy graphics games. The viewing angle has been improved drastically over the Funbook and so watching movies and playing games is a better experience. The battery lasted up to five hours with browsing, playing games and watching movie.


A good deal if you need a big tablet under Rs 10,000.
