After the grand success of Micromax Funbook 7 inch Android ICS 4.0.3 tablet, here comes the new Micromax Funbook Pro P500 which has something more to offer and that too at the most economic price. The major thing you notice with Micromax Funbook Pro is its 10.1 inch display size, increased RAM of 1GB and more powerful battery backup.

A super awesome tablet with respect to its hardware configuration and the most economic pricing, it is surely a golden hit at Rs 9999 (including taxes)

This is the second tablet from Micromax after their first Funbook 7 inch tablet. We still wonder at the pricing factor of Rs 9999 with respect to the changes over its previous product. What we see the difference between Funbook and Funbook Pro are as below:

Funbook ProFunbook
Display: 25.6 Cm (10.1 inch) TFT Capacitive Touch ScreenDisplay: 17.78 Cm (7 inch) TFT Capacitive Touch Screen
Internal Storage: 8GB inbuilt storage memoryInternal Storage: 4GB inbuilt storage memory
Battery: 5600mAH Lithium-polymer BatteryBattery: 2800 mAh Li-Ion Battery

Manufacturing cost of those specified 4 point changes isn’t really that high where Micomax has priced the new Funbook Pro tablet to go at 9999 INR in our view. The previous release of Funbook P300 is available at Rs 6499 and people who already own the previous 7 inch tablet, isn’t quite impressed with the changes in the new Funbook Pro to feel the urge to get one. The┬ásystem on a chip (SOC) of both the tablets are same.

Providing the latest android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update would have added a cherry to the new Funbook Pro. Judging over the price factor and the changes over the previous release, we are really not well impressed by this tablet. Otherwise at a glance for people who haven’t used an Android at this low budget would really love to feel the ultimate experience on it provided with a powerful Dual Mali 400 Graphics processing unit and the power of 1.2 Ghz Cortex A8 processor with added fuel of 1GB DDR3 RAM.
