Recently, Micromax lost considerable tablet market share in India to Samsung and Apple.

The new tablet is expected to assist Micromax to expand its presence in global markets.

Micromax LapTab tablet is powered by an Intel processor (Bay Trail-M).

Tablet users can reboot the device and select the alternate option to switch from Windows to Android and vice versa.

As Micromax looks to expand footprints across global markets, it would continue to fulfill its promise of democratizing technology for people around the world by making it more affordable and accessible. It will launch new products across international markets in next six months.
