Micromax has by now well established itself in the mobile phone and tablet market offering price effective devices packed with some decent hardware. The P280 is yet another addition to the Funbook line-up. Priced at Rs. 4500 it is made and promoted to be used for official purposes like creating documents, emails etc. and intended to be used with a keyboard housed in a leather case. The P280 comes with no fancy hardware.
It has a 7 inch (17.7cm), capacitive, 5 multipoint touch screen with 800×480 pixels resolution. Powered by a single core 1GHz Cortex A8 processor it runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.
The connectivity options offered are wifi and USB (can connect an external GSM/3G dongle) with no calling facility. Under the hood is a front facing 0.3 megapixel camera (main camera not provided) for conferencing. A powerful 2400 mAh battery is a plus point while the 512MB DDR3 RAM is a bit below the mark. It has got a standard 4GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 32GB via an external memory card. It has also got some cool built-in apps like Spuul, Opera Mini, kingsoft Office and M!Live.
In all, the P280 is a decent tab for moderate users with limited utility. Certainly not for heavy gamers and multimedia users. Go for it if all you need to do is documents, emails and internet on home/office wifi.
