Micromax Canvas LapTab Review – An Average Hybrid in the Best Possible Sense of the Word

The grand unveiling of their new product this week marked the grand entrance for Micromax to the laptop-tablet hybrid market. The Micromax Canvas LapTab Dual OS might not be the most celebrated piece of equipment at this year’s CES, it still deserves an approving nod for being able to rock both Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating systems. Providing tablet convenience and laptop functionality for a reasonable price will ensure the LapTab’s popularity for the average user, who wants to get his hand on a hybrid but wish to keep both his kidneys.

Micromax Canvas Laptab

Design, Screen and Specs

The design follows popular market standards: we get the usual windows button in the middle, camera on top with the light sensor, average sized frame and the whole model has a comfortable thinness to it. The LapTab flashes at 10.1” screen capable of 1280 x 800 pixels resolution. The side houses the usual important ports: a MicroSD slot, mini HDMI for the multimedia experience, a jack for sound input and a USB 3.0 slot. Don’t let the metallic shine fool you though: the back only gets a hard plastic cover, no aluminium involved.

Powered by an 1.46 GHz Intel Celeron processor with 2GB RAM, it provides enough raw force for most consumer apps, programs and purposes. Having 32GB internal memory seems to be enough, but the tablet only let’s you take control over half of that space, and the LapTabs on display at CES only had a little bit more than 3GB free space on them. While this may have been because the developers packed them full of shiny and impressive apps to show off the tablet’s true capabilities, it still sounds horrible when you think about how the little space left is barely enough to run Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This is where we are thankful for that MicroSD slot, since we have the choice to add an additional 32GB flash card, thus ending up with 64GB of memory.

On the bright side, the LapTab hits the shelves in the U.S. next month and will be sold for a price around 400-500$, which does sound like a bargain and will surely add to the model’s success.

Laptop Accessories, and Battery

The LapTab comes with a nice and comfortable-looking wireless keyboard, which has a very durable but light transleeve, that can be used as a cover or a stand. The keyboard includes a secondary battery, which altogether accounts for 20 hours of runtime. Custom keyboards will be available after LapTab hits the stores.

All in All

While the Micromax Canvas LapTab is altogether an average tablet, we should be really grateful because… it’s an average tablet! The first model from a developer known for quality for low prices sets a steady foot on the market. Great screen, a sound processor and enough memory to work with, and 20 hours of runtime. What more do you need?

It comes as a bit of a surprise that when Microsoft is about to take over Nokia, Nokia released their new first ever tablet competing with their future owners themselves. And making it more interesting, Microsoft has released its new tablet the Microsoft Surface 2. The internal competition is heating up but we doubt Nokia will be coming up with another tablet now and the next one is surely going to be from Microsoft and Nokia’s collective stable. The market is heating up and we are enjoying a lot but we do not want you to be confused as to which tablet to buy. So we are going to review the Microsoft Surface 2 to check out if it really hold true for the values of the market and the company.

Build and Design:
The design on the Surface 2 is pretty decent using almost the same pattern as that of the Lumia 2520 since Windows needs a standard hardware and is not as customizable as Android. But overall the device is pretty well made with controls provided for everything including physical buttons along the side and a capacitive touch Windows start button. This though is a Wi-Fi only model and does not have a SIM card slot in it. So for the GSM expectationalists, this one is not for you. Also the tablet comes with a back rest and a keyboard which is usable for typing purposes and also provides extra battery backup.

The display on the device is pretty amazing. It boasts of a 10.6” TFT Capacitive touchscreen with resolution of 1920 x 1080 Full HD at 208 ppi. This is an amazing display with good colour reproduction and deep blacks as well. Just with the current trend going towards Ultra HD and Retina Displays, a bit more was expected from this tablet in that department.

The tablet is powered by the Nvidia powerhouse; the Tegra 4 T40 clocked at 1.7 GHz Cortex A-15 Quad Core. It is coupled with the ULP GeForce GPU which contains a record breaking 72 cores in it making this a huge competitor to the Snapdragon 800 totting tablets in the market. It also has USB 3.0 ports and USB Host support on it.

Memory & RAM:
On the memory front, the tablet is short of none as it comes in both 32 and 64 GB variants as well as has a 64 GB expandable Micro SD Card slot. It also comes with 2 GB RAM which is enough for running the device smoothly. So you can be sure that this device will do exactly what you want it to do and will not keep you waiting for anything.

Operating System:
The tablet runs on Microsoft’s own Windows RT which is a Windows OS specially designed and optimized for tablets and touch. It is based on the same kernel as Windows 8 and Windows Phone and Microsoft is even planning to combine Windows RT with Windows Phone in the next generation OS and name it Windows Phone 8.1 which will be optimized for both cell phones and tablets. It has all the apps available for Windows desktop so you can be sure that you will never be short of anything.

Camera on tablets is not so much a huge deal because they are not that widely used as much as those on cell phones. The reason being that the tablet being bulky, it is a lot of effort to hold the tab and click. But still the Surface 2 is equipped with a decent 5 MP camera which is capable of 1080p Full HD videos, which is awesome. Also there is a 3.5 MP front camera capable of 1080p Full HD videos for video chatting.

As for the battery, it does come with a non-removable battery which lasts for 8 hours easy on Wi-Fi. So since this is a Wi-Fi only device, then you can be sure that with moderate usage you can easily make this last for a single working day.

So all in all the Microsoft Surface 2 is a good tablet with great specs and a good enough battery life. And Windows RT out of the box means it is a good utility as well as entertainment package; though Microsoft has targeted it for the working class with free Office Suite in built and the works. So if you want a good tablet at a cheaper price than the iPads and with a bigger screen, ample space, good battery and easy to work on, then the Microsoft Surface 2 is for you. Here is a quick specs recap for you.

  • Display: 10.6” TFT Capacitive Display
  • Resolution: 1920 x 1080
  • Processor: 1.7 GHz Nvidia Tegra 4 Quad Core
  • GPU: 72 core ULP GeForce
  • RAM: 2 GB

  • Battery: 8 hours on Wi-Fi
  • Camera: 5 MP rear, 3.5 MP front
