Micromax probably isn’t a name most consumers are familiar with, but they are one of the biggest names on India’s mobile scene.
ASUS made a big splash at CES 2014 with their dual-boot Transformer Book Duet, but it turns out Micromax had a dual-boot device of their own called the Micromax LapTab.
Dual-boot tablets and laptops are beginning to gain steam, and the Micromax LapTab has joined the fray by allowing users to switch between Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2.2. Being able to run two OS’s is impressive, but the LapTab’s specs are mediocre. The Micromax LapTab sports a 1.46 GHz Intel Celeron N2805 processor with a 10.1-inch 1,280 x 800 IPS touchscreen display.
Rounding things out are a 2MP camera, 2GB or RAM, a 7400 mAh battery, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 32 GB of storage that’s expandable up to 64GB. The LapTab also comes with a “Transleeve” that is used as a cover and stand for the wireless keyboard, and that keyboard holds an additional 230 mAh battery to help give you continuous usage.
While the specs aren’t going to blow you away, the Micromax LapTab is a mid-range setup that could be useful for folks wanting to experience Windows 8.1 and Android on one device. No price has been set, but the Micromax LapTab will be out early next month if you’re interested in giving it a shot.
