Edit : How The Micromax P300 Booklet will Change the Tablet game in India

Browse This Page

Micromax was the first Indian Mobile phone manufacturer to make a global mark, a year and some months ago they introduced their first Android Phone the Andro A60, which changed the face of Android phones in India. 

Today the company stands at a different crossroad in between their future as a brand, with a new identity, and what they possibly aim to achieve. They have a long way to go to achieve the brand snob value they wish to achieve. The consumer feedback speaks of the lack of unique products from the company and more importantly the lack of after sales support. Micromax is today considered a glorified china-manufactured product seller in India, infact Micromax is probably aware of their market image.

The story does not end here infact it changes completely from here, Micromax is now bent on changing their market appeal in a big way. Of-course their re-branding is the first step, but the biggest possible change is going to be their overall process revamp. Lets read about their latest marvel:

The Micromax P300 Booklet

Yes many already know about this tablet from the company, recently a popular online retailer outed the tablet in the inter webs sparking a cracker that refuses to go down.

Hardware

A sub Rs. 8000 tablet that includes a 7.0-inch TFT-LCD multitouch capacitive screen along with a 1 Ghz processor(rumors suggest a dual core processor) and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi,USB port and a 3.5mm AV. we have come to know that the tablet will also possibly support 3G data and voice calls/ video calls using a Micromax dongle, possibly supplied with the tablet bundle. The image appears to show a front camera and no rear camera, but the fact remains that a 0.3mp camera makes more sense on the front than it ever did on the back. Yes there is also HDMI out and HD video playback.

India Inc.

Yes the tablet will be manufactured in India (or so is the buzz), so expect better after sales support and spares for the device. This is also set to change the company’s image in the market giving the P300 Booklet a “Made in India” moniker, that might actually do owners proud to own the Tablet.

P300 will succeed where others have Failed

Lest we bring up the failure of the Indian Government in bringing a budget Tablet to the market. The Aakash Tablet, a well heard name, yes we felt excited when the product actually came to market, but all was lost. The performance matched expectations, but their deliveries couldn’t. With more than hand-able orders the company “data wind” seems to have imploded and is unable to deliver to the millions waiting for any sign of their tablet.

Others like the Beetel tab, Reliance tab, HCL Me Tab, etc have one big thing in common, they are imports built on a system type that is bound to fail. The performance levels and specs in those tablets don’t come anywhere close to the supposed specs of the P300 Booklet.  Not to forget they all are priced way over 10,000 rupees, with the old Android 2.3 and some with Android 2.2, never to get updated to ICS. The Micromax P300 will come out of the box with Android 4.0.3, with possible customizations to make an impact on the user market.

The Future

The tablet is expected to launch in the coming weeks, and should do immensely well in our consumer market. The specs and features, if anywhere close to the ones discussed, will deliver a promising experience. The ID of the tablet will also be unique because the Company (Micromax) is making an extra effort to define themselves as unique manufacturers. 

Made in India, tablets and phones could also mean that Micromax actually invests in a company to start manufacturing their own equipment, which could result in better service and unique new Research into the Mobile sector.

Hopefully the tab is more than we expect it to be and a total joy to review for you guys.

    Tablet looks and specs are same as that of the VeeDee D10 and NXG A10 tablet. Both are Indian companies. If this tablet is powered by Allwinner A10 then almost all HD games can be played on this device and for Rs.8000 this one is the monster…

    I agree with one of the comments below that this site acts like PR agency for micromax (not a wrong thing to do, but a little honesty would go a long way)…but does not agree with language used.
    Also there is nothing new with this tablet…it is just a re-branded chinese tablet…MOMO player9…already in the market as Veedee D10 and olive have started pre ordering it as VT-300..all less than Rs.7000

       Only thing which can differentiate it is, if it has 1gb ram as rumored earlier, The above tabs have 512 Ram. And again I think the “made in india” moniker would be just to avoid taxes as per new budget (My guess is it will be only assembled and packaged here)
      And again one thing which, easily proves this is a rebranded and upgraded device is, it has physical home and return keys on the body. If it was really developed as ICS tablet, then they would not have been there.
      Please be honest in the future or else I will have to stop visiting one my favourite indian tech website.

    FAIL!!!

  • hey bharath nagpal,you seems like a paid worker of micromax company.you the only website get update of micromax,no other websites.i know about you very well.why dont you write an article about this so called indian company mciromax releasing android phones without any kernel source.because of that many users cannot enjoy new ROMs for their phones.why dont you write an article about this company violating GPL(general public license)?huh whats your answer for this?because of your false statement as micromax A70 p[hone will be getting update of 2.3(ginger bread) so many of people purchased that phonje and suffering from old version of android.why did you cheat all of the people?give your explanation.

      THIS IS COMPLETELY ATRUE STORY MY DAD’S FRIENDS WORKS FOR MICROMAX……. HE CONFIEMED ME THIS THING

      • Vivek GK

        Oh well, if your dad’s friends say so it must be true. Wait, who the heck are you? And what part of which story are you saying is true?

    • Vivek GK

      News about the Micromax tablet has been on other sites long before this article. Anybody who buys something because they expect Mercedes performance at Maruti price is always in for a rude shock. Micromax has been in business for 5 years at max. How can you expect them to match Nokia or Samsung, who have been in business for more than a decade? Give them time. Even the Galaxy series from Samsung has not got android working perfectly. For the price that they are selling, Micromax works well enough.

      As for violation of GPL, the average customer cares more about IPL than GPL, so leave it. If you want a phone which you can root, update to ICS and beyond, overclock and tweak to your heart’s content, spend more money and get something better. Micromax never mentions GPL, kernel source, OS updates or anything. Oh, and stop saying that Froyo users are ‘suffering’. More than 60% of Android users are using Froyo and do not update even if its available. You would have a point if it was still running Cupcake or Donut.Besides, tablets are not as complicated as smartphones because of the increased size. Components are not as squeezed in together, which means they can use cheaper tech for making them. And the screens do not need high pixel density either. Simply put, it is a lot easier to make a tablet work right than a Smartphone.

        As for violation of GPL, the average customer cares more about IPL than GPL, so leave it. -> Yeah why care about rules etc. This is India afterall  they complain abt corruption then but are corrupt themselves.

        And btw XTab, VeeDee are way better then MicroMax

    Egar to buy it…
