The low budget phablet of Micromax is finally out in the market and is available for sale even online on flipkart.com and snapdeal.com
It has a 5 inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480×800 pixels which gives a vivacious and a bright display. It also has pinch zoom and multi-touch options. It runs on the old version of android, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It is powered by 1GHz processor accompanied by 256MB RAM which boosts the overall performance of the phone.
It has 3 MP rear camera, VGA front camera, 2G (EDGE support) an internal memory of 110MB but has an expandable card slot up to 16GB and 2,000MAh battery which gives a longer talk time (about 7 hours) and standby time(about 280hours) too. It has dual sim slot and dual standby service. Camera does not have LED flashlight. It has FM radio and supports audio jack of 3.5mm. It does not provide 3G connectivity. It has Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB support. Good enough for a low priced phablet and an entry level android user.

The specs really disappoint but good for a common man’s budget. The internal memory should have been a bit higher, say around 500MB at least. But why should only the rich ones have all the fun?
Though the specs just seem ok, it’s good only for entertainment purposes. Call quality is not quite satisfactory, camera also disheartens android users.
