Micromax has unveiled LapTab which would be launched officially in early February for consumers.
LapTab, the first dual-boot Windows and Android tablet powered by Intel was unveiled at CES 2014. Powered by an Intel processor (Bay Trail-M), the first-in-the-world tablet will offer great performance, and promises an impressively long battery-life for media consumption on the device.
The device supports both Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS and Windows 8. Aptly designed for multi-tasking across operating platforms, users would need to simply reboot the device and select the alternate option to switch from Windows to Android and vice versa.
Commenting at the Pepcom event, Rahul Sharma, co-founder, Micromax said, “Today, we are taking the next leap in raising the innovation bar globally, with the introduction of LapTab. The Micromax LapTab fulfills that consumer need by giving them access to the world’s first dual-boot tablet. Combining functionality and style, the LapTab further builds on our promise to constantly empower our users with superior technology that directly addresses their needs.”
“As Micromax looks to expand footprints across global markets, we would continue to fulfill our promise of democratizing technology for people around the world by making it more affordable and accessible. We would be unveiling an array of innovative products across international markets in next six months for which Micromax is known for,” added Sharma.
Commenting on the launch Steven J Dallman, vice president, Sales and Marketing Group and general manager, OEM Channel Engagement at Intel said, “Today people want choice when it comes to operating system environments and only Intel Architecture can deliver a complete user experience. The innovation we are seeing from companies like Micromax is exciting and we congratulate the company on its introduction of the LapTab.”
Designed with precision, the form factor of the LapTab exemplifies sleekness and simplicity sporting a 10.1” IPS vibrant display. Powered by a 1.46 Ghz Intel Celeron N2805 processor, 2GB RAM and 7400 mAh battery, the tablet promises to take care of all your multitasking needs in no time making it super-efficient.
The tablet packs in a 2 MP front camera allowing users to capture images, record videos and chat online without any hassle. With its innovative brightness control technology, the LapTab automatically adjusts the screen content by continuously monitoring the environment.
With storage of 32 GB expandable up to 64 GB, the tablet supports Bluetooth v4.0 and Wi-Fi, ensuring full time connectivity. The LapTab comes with a transleeve which can be combined as a cover and stand for the wireless keyboard packed with a 230 mAh battery promising a continuous usage of 20+ hours. Consumers will also have an option to buy a customized keyboard for LapTab when it hits the stands.
