    The tablet is targeted towards the youth which promises to provide all the study related material right on their Funbook. The Funbook tagline is quite interesting that clearly tells the tablet is for education cum entertainment purpose. Micromax has tied up with various big publishers to provide study material, e-books and has got more than 500 courses ranging from Class I to degree level. 

    To make sure that you don't get bored with the tablet, Micromax has partnered with BIGfilx to bring all the latest movie flicks into your palm and you get 30 days free access which enables you to download as much movies as you want in the free period. If you get bored with movies, you can always download a game to play on your Funbook. Overall its possibly impossible to get bored with a Funbook in your hand. 

    The weight of the tablet or rather the lack of it is the first thing one would notice as soon as it gets in the hand. The Funbook is quite slim, and portable enough to slide in your back pocket easily. The tablet runs on the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which enables the users to get the optimum Android experience with whole lot of apps available to download through the Android Market.

        • Only a VGA front facing camera, No high resolution back camera.
        • No Mobile Connectivity or 3G. ( i.e., can't use it as a mobile phone.)

    My Verdict: The Funbook tablet is the best that you can get in the market at such a low price. Its gonna rule the low cost segment of the tablet till there is no better competitor. I will give it 4.0/5 keeping in mind the price of the tablet.
