The slate comes with voice calling support, but no 3G connectivity
Indian company Micromax is about to debut its first Jelly Bean tablet. Dubbed Funbook Talk P362, the slate is expected to be officially introduced in India in the next few days.The tablet was recently spotted by the folks over at AndroidOS on Micromax’s official website, but there are no details on pricing options and availability yet.
However, the company confirms the table will be available in Slate Grey and Midnight Black color options.
Funbook Talk P362 will be the first tablet launched by Micromax that ships with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box.
Those who choose to purchase the slate will have access to a huge number of apps and games via Google Play Store, but also other third-party apps, “indulge your intellect with its preloaded study material and endless entertainment options.”
Another selling point of the Jelly Bean tablet is the fact that it comes with voice calling support, so users will be able to take and make calls while on the go.
Sadly, Micromax Funbook Talk P362 does not feature 3G connectivity, so users will be limited to EDGE data speeds. Other connectivity features include Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB and Wi-Fi.
Hardware-wise, the tablet is pretty decent and packs a 1.2GHz single-core Cortex-A9 processor, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
The slate’s 7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display supports 800 x 480 pixels resolution and 262k colors. On the back, the tablet sports a sub-par 2-megapixel photo snapper, while in the front there’s a secondary VGA camera for video calls.
Last but not least, Micromax Funbook Talk P362 drains energy from a 3,000 mAh Li-Ion battery which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
