The Android tablet PC market is every growing and when it was Kindle Fire announced by Amazon early last year, everyone though that, it could be the least price at which one can purchase a tablet but things turned out to be quickly the other way and this year within no time, Google will be selling its Android tablet rumored to be price at $ 160. It’s just few months away from Google directly coming to Android tablet sales and just before that many tablet manufacturers are gearing up for the competition.

The picture in India tablet market is completely different as 80 % of the customers are looking for the cheap tablets thanks to Aakash which failed eventually, has set up mind frame in the people that tablets can come below Rs 5,000 also. Furthermore intensifying the tablet PC market in India, yesterday Zen Pad A10 tablet was launched at a price of Rs 8,000 what we though is the best price you can get an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet. Just when it landed to enjoy the luck of only Android 4.0 ICS tablet in India below Rs 10,000, here comes the Micromax FunBook.

Micromax has overcomed that its always looking to provide innovative products from time to time. The good thing is Android 4.0 brings various capabilities and functions to the operating system and the user interface is amazing. With Android it comes access to Android Play Store at where you can install, try and purchase various free, paid applications, games, utilities and tools.

The screen comes with multi touch input which is capacitive and provides a maximum resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and comes with pinch and zoom feature.
