We have finally got hold of the official press release for the Micromax LapTab, the new Windows 8.1 – Android dual-boot tablet, which was announced yesterday at Pepcom’s Digital Experience in Las Vegas.
According to the press release, Micromax LapTab (yes, there is no Canvas branding) features 1.46GHz Intel Celeron N2805 processor, Android 4.2.2/ Windows 8.1, 10.1-inch IPS display with 1280x800p resolution and 2GB of RAM. It also comes with 7400 mAh battery, 2MP front camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 32GB of storage, microSD card slot, and Wi-Fi support.
“We are taking the next leap in raising the innovation bar globally, with the introduction of LapTab. Over the past few years, we have been witnessing a growing trend of increasing consumer demand for two operating systems in one device, which offers a blend of great PC like productivity in a tablet like form factor for seamless consumption. The Micromax LapTab fulfills that consumer need by giving them access to the world’s first dual-boot tablet. Combining functionality and style, the LapTab further builds on our promise to constantly empower our users with superior technology that directly addresses their needs,” said Rahul Sharma, Co-Founder, Micromax.
