PRO OR NOT?

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Hav­ing sold over 1.4 lakh units of its 7-inch Fun­book in just 100 days, Mi­cro­max re­alised the need for a slightly big­ger tablet. So the com­pany came up with the Fun­book Pro, a 10.1-inch tablet, which oth­er­wise looks like the orig­i­nal Fun­book ex­cept for the larger, heav­ier build.

The An­droid Ice-Cream Sand­wich de­vice has stan­dard menu icons on the left bot­tom of the dis­play, elim­i­nat­ing the need for phys­i­cal keys. There is still a back key next to the vol­ume keys on the top. Tech­ni­cally, the Fun­book Pro can be used in both land­scape as well as por­trait modes, but the con­trols and the front-fac­ing cam­era make it more con­ve­nient to be used in the land­scape.

The touch re­sponse of this 10 incher is good, though we no­ticed a slight lag while typ­ing. Pow­ered by a 1.2GHz pro­ces­sor and 1GB RAM, the tablet per­formed well dur­ing brows­ing and while play­ing ca­sual games. But we re­alised that this tablet is not meant for heavy graph­ics games. The view­ing an­gle has been im­proved dras­ti­cally over the Fun­book and so watch­ing movies and play­ing games is a bet­ter ex­pe­ri­ence. The bat­tery lasted up to five hours with brows­ing, play­ing games and watch­ing movie.
