Excellent Hardy Device (Micromax P650 Tab with Latest O/S version) for the price of USD 250 sold in Sri Lanka... Why pay more just for a brand name & bogusly created YouTube hype with product launches of too many versions... What matters are Hardy Usable Device, Elegant Exterior Design, Good Processor, High RAM, External SDRAM, USB3.0 port (File Transfer & Printer Connectivity), Wireless, Auto O/S Update, 4800mAH or higher battery or Extendable Battery Port, Remote Desktop App... If sold for USD 200 with 2-8 payment , Micromax could storm Sri Lanka Domestic Market, especially targeting Students & Young Executives...
