Indian technology companies Micromax and Karbonn launched their respective low-cost tablets into the market a few days ago, targetting middle class buyers.

Both the tablets - Micromax Funbook Talk P360 and Karbonn TA-Fone A37 - pack pretty descent features with an affordable price tag of less than ₹10,000, giving stiff fight to MNC brands like Google Nexus 7 and Samsung's tablet PCs which fall within ₹16,000 price brackets.

Here is a brief description of Micromax Funbook Talk P360 and Karbonn TA-Fone A37:


Micromax Funbook Talk tablet sports a 7.0-inch TFT LCD screen with 800x 480 resolutions. Karbonn TA-Fone too features a 7.0-inch TFT LCD screen with similar display resolutions.


In terms of power, Micromax tablet packs a single-core processor with 1GHz CPU speed whereas Karbonn's device takes lead, thanks to its more efficient 1GHz dual-core core processor.


Funbook Talk P360 houses two cameras - one 2.0-megapixel rear side camera with 4X zoom and a 0.3-megapixel VGA camera at front. On the other hand, Karbonn A37 features similar 2.0-megapixel camera in the back and a VGA camera on the front side.

Memory Capacity:

Both tablet PCs have 4GB internal memory with capability of expanding up to 32GB, but Micromax's tablet comes with 1GB RAM whereas Karbonn device packs 512MB even though it is more expensive than its competitor.

Operating System:

Micromax Funbook Talk P360 runs on the Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich whereas Karbonn A37 runs on the newer Android mobile OS v4.1 Jelly Bean. The difference is negligible since the new updated OS only adds a minor performance and functionality enhancement to the device.

Both the device buyers will still have more than 700,000 apps and addictive games to choose in the Google Play store.


Micromax Funbook Talk P360 is priced ₹6,999, whereas Karbonn TA-Fone A37 holds a price-tag of ₹9,490, almost ₹2,500 more than its rival, but the Karbonn tablet compensates the higher cost with its dual-core processor.
