Micromax has already introduced super successful Canvas series of smartphone in the Indian market, and now the company is expanding its range by launching its first ever tablet under the Canvas brand. It is great news indeed for all the gadget loving people of the country, and it seems this new tablet will add special spark to this base.
The new Micromax Canvas Tab P650 tablet sports an 8-inch display, and the screen can easily offer resolutions of 1024*768 pixels. It is quite similar the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (311) and Apple iPad mini in terms of screen size. It has been priced at Rs. 16,500, and currently it is available in various retail stores across the nation.
The Canvas Tab P650 features an aluminium body and an IPS display too. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor along with 1GB of RAM. It includes 16GB of internal storage, and luckily the storage can be expanded up to 32GB with the support of a microSD card. The tablet runs on Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) Operating System, and the best part is it can be upgraded to the future versions of Android OS.
This new tablets carries a 5-megapixel rear shooter and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. It has the much-needed voice calling support, and to access the internet facility one can simply use Wi-Fi or 3G networks in it. It is proudly backed up by a 4,800mAh battery, which as per company’s claim can offer up to 5 hours of browsing time on 3G. Several high quality apps have already been pre-loaded in this tablet such as Opera Mini, M! Live, Music Hub, Spuul and M! Security.
Rahul Sharma, who is eventually the co-founder of Micromax, was present at the launch event. He expressed his utmost joy while unveiling the tablet officially. He said, "With Canvas Tab, we are offering Indian consumers a unique combination of superior technology complemented with unmatched style. We aim to extend the Canvas experience to our users on the tablet PCs, supported by an entire eco-system of applications.

It deserves a special mention here that though this tablet is the first ever tablet developed by Micromax under the Canvas brand, the company has already been producing tablets under its Funbook series for a while now.

Micromax has already established itself as one of the trustiest brands in India, and the super successful Canvas series is as popular as the Galaxy series of Samsung or the Asha series of Nokia. Now the company launches tablet under Canvas brand, which is a great thing. I think the company won’t take any risk to dilute the image of this brand, and for that the Canvas Tab P650 should be very useful. It is having a large screen, quality OS, stable processors and a very powerful battery. It is very much affordable compared to the similar products of the rival companies.
