Indian vendor Micromax is aiming big internationally, as it unveils a dual-boot tablet called Canvas LapTab that runs on both Android and Microsoft Windows OS at CES 2014 event.
Micromax Canvas LapTab has been touted as the first dual-boot tablet that operates on Microsoft OS and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. Talking of specification the tablet is powered by the latest Intel Bay Trail-M chipset with a specification of 1.46GHz Intel Celeron N2805 processor coupled with 2GB RAM. It’s one of the first devices to be announced with that Intel chipset and Micromax claims it to offer great performance along with long battery-life.
The tablet spots a 10.1 inch IPS display with a screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It got 32GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 64GB using microSD card. On the front it got a 2 megapixel camera with light sensor. On the connectivity front it got WiFi and Bluetooth v4.0. It carries a massive 7400 mAh battery promising hours of backup.
The major attraction of the tablet is the dual-boot scenario, where users can boot in either Windows 8.1 OS or Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS. But the only negative side here is that user will need to reboot the device to boot into either OS as there is no hot swap option, something limited by the Intel processor.
In the accessories part the Canvas LapTab comes with a transleeve which can be combined as a cover and stand for the wireless keyboard packed with a 230 mAh battery promising a continuous usage of 20+ hours.
