Confident with the popularity of its Canvas phones, Micromax launched its first ‘premium’ 8-inch tablet. The flagship tablet called Canvas Tab P650 costs Rs 16,500.

The tablet does look great with all-metallic aluminium body and has specifications similar to that of the Canvas phone. It comes with a quad core processor and 1GB of RAM.

It’s a 3G tablet with a slot for one SIM card and supports voice calls.

Call it gimmicky, but Canvas Tab also comes loaded with software. For example, it has the software that can pause a video when the user looks away and a software that allows users to pin videos and browser in one of the screen while he or she use the other half for other activities.

The tablet competes directly with Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 that features a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and 1GB RAM and only 8 GB internal memory.
