You can now buy the Micromax Funbook from Snapdeal.com and Ncarry.com for Rs. 6,499 with free Tata Photon 3G dongle with 2 months free usage (limited to 1 GB). There was a lot of confusion regarding the free Tata 3G dongle.
The Micromax website mentioned it came bundled with Tata photon whereas when I called the Ncarry.com support (when the tab was first launched) they were as confused as I was and told it came without the photon option.
Now even Ncarry.com has updated their buy now page which now mentions that Tata Photon + 3G Dongle comes bundled. I think it is the Tata Photon plus that will be bundled as seen on the Ncarry site.
Now this changes the equation completely. As of now the Micromax Funbook becomes the cheapest among Xtab A10, VeeDee D10, VeeDee D10e and Karbonn Smart Tab 1. Though I have not yet checked the funbook tab yet, I think it belongs to the same MID series and processing power and features are as good as the Xtab and D10, D10e.
What’s more this tab comes with a 3G Tata Photon dongle which will definitely work with the tab. This also means the device is internet ready right out of the box. No more fiddling with existing USB dongles that may or may not work with the tab. And since this comes for free you will not mind having another 3G dongle. Do note that you may need to subscribe to Tata photon plans to continue using the 3G connectivity.
