Shipments of small tablets continue to be strong in India, indicating that these devices still have got room to growth.
Especially, the 7-inch tablet seems to be proving popular among Indian youth. India-based Micromax sees immense potential in the low-cost devices, and today the company brings yet another 7-inch tablet, the Canvas Tab P650E, in India.
The tablet, Micromax Canvas Tab P650E, is a CDMA version of yet another popular tablet from the same brand, the Canvas Tab P650.
Apparently, the tablet is already available for Rs. 8,999 through an online shopping site. However, the makers behind Canvas Knight A350 have yet to reveal the retail price and availability of Canvas Tab P650E.
At the moment, the Canvas Tab P650E is now listed on the company's official site. Looks like Indian users have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the firm's latest 7-inch Android-powered tablet.
