Micromax has launched yet another affordable tablet in its Funbook series called the Funbook P280. The tablet is priced at Rs 4,650 and is available on Indian e-commerce sites and retail stores across the country.

Talking of specifications, the Funbook P280 flaunts a 7-inch display and is powered by a Cortex A8 dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz and paired with Dual Mali-400 GPU and 512MB of RAM. Other features include VGA rear camera, 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB using a microSD card and a 2,400mAh battery, which the company says can survive for up to 250 hours on standby mode.

Connectivity options include 3G support via Internet dongle and Wi-Fi and on the software front, it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Along with the tablet, Micromax is also bundling a leather case with a detachable keyboard.

Priced at Rs 4,650, the Micromax Funbook P280 will be up against the likes of Lava E-Tab Velo+, Datawind UbiSlate 7C+ EDGE and the HCL ME Sync 1.0 (U3).  The E-Tab Velo+, priced at Rs 4,799, is the same tablet as the Funbook P280 in terms of specs, except it doesn’t support 3G and is powered by a single-core processor.

The UbiSlate 7C+ is a bit more expensive at Rs 4,999, but for that extra Rs 300 you will get voice calling. On the flipside though, the tablet is still stuck on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and again features only a single-core processor.

Lastly, the ME Sync 1.0 too is priced at Rs 4,999, but doesn’t offer voice calling like the UbiSlate. Instead, for the extra money you get a 2-megapixel rear camera in addition to the VGA front camera and a bigger battery (3,100mAh). On the flipside though, like the above tablets, it is powered by a single-core processor.
