Some reviews about Micromax Funbook:

Good But Be Careful..!
Finally received this tablet from another store since its not available on flipkart yet(as on 16-04-2012)....been using it since a week now and now i guess i can tell u all the flaws basically since other reviews only tell you what already is written on the box or in the specifications,,,,,,,

First of all,the tablet isn't that gr8 to look at,i mean its "OK",nothing too good bout it

Secondly,mine went gaga while typing once,had to do a factory reset and been working alright since then,i hope it doesn't do that again,

Thirdly,web browsing isnt a gr8 experience,its "NICE" though

Fourthly,hardware buttons look like a cheap tablet buttons, there was no need to do that,i searched Google and saw this tablet sold in open market by some other Chinese name so basically what micromax has done is buy a cheap tablet,used the micromax stamp and sold it to us,typically Indian

Fifthly,camera sucks,o man its filthy, Skype video call is a shame,i tried calling a buddy with a same tablet and the sound was like barking dogs and video was like green strips,rest u guys can imagine,i felt like smacking the tablet in the wall(yes it does have a inbuilt microphone)

Sixthly,it does make u feel every now and then that its a 6k tablet

NOW THE GOOD THINGS(keeping in mind it costs only 6.5k)
screen brightness is good and the touch itself is very nice
YouTube works flawlessly
eBook reading is nice too
gaming is a good experience
applications start w/o lag
 I didn't find the speaker too bad,they are nice,i like hearing some music and its nice to have this tablet around
android 4.0.3 ICS is good interface,just the feel of it is nice

If this is going to be your first tablet u are gonna love the hell out of it but if u have used anything like Samsung or apple or blackberry and u are gonna compare it to them then its gonna be hard for you to justify why u bought far as i am concerned i am giving it a 3 out of 5 stars.....a good tablet but nothing great....useful but not cool but not crazy.....if u cnt afford 25k tablets u should go nowhere else and buy this one straight....

Best Tablet Ever
The original tablet is player momo9 which has been re branded as micromax funbook the tablet is excellent and gives a good battery backup for more than 3 hrs. Plays HD videos very well. Those who have problem with Skype its not micromax problem it is problem with the Skype app with the recent android ICS tablets i don't no why people just blindly accuse the brand without even thinking or trying to solve the problem google for the compatible versions and install it and the issue will be solved. Regarding the dongle being only supported of tata photon this is not true exactly i used my own 3g service with aircel sim all you need to do is follow these steps

1. With the given Extension card for connecting the USB port connect your data card.
2. Go to Settings--> Select More--> then Mobile Networks
3. Enable Mobile network and also enable data while roaming.
4. Click on the Mobile networks, in that you can see "TATA" with the dial number #777.
5. Click that, it will go inside that option,
6. Then Scroll to the user name and password section.
7. Select and enter your user name and password of your data card.

I hope my review would have helped many.

PS: Buy products of which you are aware of don't blame the manufactures or the distribution brand for it and for gods sake learn to use GOOGLE before posting unwanted things.

Micromax "Funbook" Tablet
Its An amazing buy at this Price (Rs. 6499), I bought It The day very fast to get a glimpse of The Micromax Tablet After the success of The Superfone Series.
*The Tablet is extra smooth thanks to the 1.22 Ghz A8 Cortex Processor.
*Backstab HD, Asphalt 6 HD, And Nearly All High Graphics games work seamlessly Thanks to the Dual-Mali 400 GPU (Used By Galaxy S2).
*VGA Camera is surprisingly great, seems like a 1MP Atleast according to the Picture Quality, great for Skype, And other Video Chatting Apps.
*ICE CREAM SANDWICH Is simply amazing much better than the Honeycomb, Though Design is pretty Much The same, Adding Additional Widgets Really Improve your Home page.
*1080p Be it AVI, MKV, OR even 3D Movies (Red/Cyan) work Smoothly, The HDMI Port is a Superb Addition for HD TV's.
- Battery Could have Been Better, lasts for 4 Hours on Full Usage, But On Standby Can Last for 10 Hours With Moderate Usage Occasionally.
- 512MB Ram which reduces to 400 On Software Should Have been higher.
