Micromax launches Canvas LapTab 2-in-1 at Rs 14,999

NEW DELHI: More than an year after announcing it, Micromax has finally launched Canvas LapTab, a laptop-tablet hybrid at Rs 14,999. The device comprises of a Windows-powered tablet and a dockable keyboard. It will be available exclusively on starting May 6, 2015. 

The LapTab sports a 10.1-inch WXGA (1280x800p) IPS touch-display. 

Powered by an up to 1.83GHz Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor and 2GB DDR3L RAM, the device comes with 32GB storage and a microSD card slot. 

The device runs Windows 8.1 and offers 1TB of cloud storage space and an year's subscription of Office 365. 

The tablet part sports a 2MP rear and 2MP front-facing camera and comes with a 7700mAh battery. In terms of connectivity options, the device supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 2G and 3G, and comes with a sim card slot. It also sports a USB 2.0 port. The keyboard has 82 keys and a trackpad.

Commenting on the launch Vineet Taneja, CEO, Micromax Informatics Limited, said, "At Micromax, we have always believed in bringing the best in class and innovative devices to the consumers and have always aimed to bridge the gap between actual consumer device requirement and available device offering and hence, the Laptab promises to bridge the same at a very consumer friendly price point. Today's launch marks our entry into the PC segment, where we intend to drive category growth and not only garner an available market share. We believe that our vision complements the initiatives for Digital India, and we will be launching a range of exciting products over the next few months in the category." 

The LapTab was originally conceived as a dual-boot Windows and Android tablet and had different specifications and unveiled in January 2014. However, despite a confirmation in March, the LapTab never saw the light of the day. One of the reasons for the same could be Microsoft and Google putting pressure on device-makers to halt dual-OS devices, as indicated by some reports. 

The LapTab appears to be an Intel reference design device similar to the Notion Ink Cain, Croma tablet and Swipe Ultimate tablets.
