First Look: Micromax Canvas Laptab

The 10.1 inch display is bright and is very touch responsive

Micromax yesterday launched Canvas Laptab, which marks the company’s entry into PC segment. The laptop-tablet hybrid comprises of a 10.1 inch tablet unit and a dockable keyboard. The 2-in-1 will be available exclusively on Amazon.in at a price of Rs. 14,999 starting May 6, 2015. We checked the device at the launch event and here is the preview of the Canvas Laptab.

The 10.1 inch display is bright and is very touch responsive

The Laptab features a 10.1-inch WXGA (1280x800p) IPS touch-display which looked sharp and was fairly touch responsive. You can create Power point presentations, excel sheets and can perform all other productive tasks on the large display.

The back has a matte finish the overall design looks quite sturdy

The tablet unit has a matte finish back and has a sturdy Construction. There is a 2 MP camera at the back in the center and the volume rockers and power button are placed on the right. We liked the overall look and feel of the tablet. Despite a price tag of Rs. 14,999, it does not feel cheap.

The volume rockers and other ports are all provided on the tablet unit

The top edge houses the 3.5 mm headphone jack, microSD card slot that lets you add up-to 32 GB extra storage, SIM card slot that also supports 3G and a USB 2.0 port. The other connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. You can use the 2-in-1 as a calling device, as a tablet and as a laptop to perform productivity tasks on the go.

The dock keyboard is made of good quality plastic

This is the dock keyboard (82 keys) in the separated mode. We have reviewed some hybrids previously such as NotionInk Cain, Swipe Ultimate Tab, etc. and we liked the the quality of material used on the Canvas Laptab. However, the five pin connector that holds tablet unit does not offer a good grip. You have to handle it carefully otherwise it can easily part from the dock keyboard.

Canvas Laptab runs on Windows 8.1 ans will get a free update of Windows 10

The 2-in-1 is powered by an up to 1.83GHz Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core processor and 2GB DDR3L RAM for multitasking. We will give you the complete review about its performance in the upcoming week. The device runs Windows 8.1 and will get a free update to Windows 10. It also comes with 1TB of cloud storage space and one year’s subscription of Office 365.

The hybrid is backed by a 7700mAh battery. The company has claimed that it lasts for more than 10 hours. We will find out this in the complete review of the Canvas Laptab.
