India's Micromax announces dual-boot Android/Windows 8.1 tablet

If you know Micromax at all, there's a good chance you live in India -- or maybe you've caught wind of one of those low-cost Canvas handsets. Turns out the company is the second-largest smartphone maker in its native country, on top of dabbling in the HDTV and tablet spaces (and really awful slogans like "Nothing Like Anything"), among others. Micromax is hitting CES this year with a pretty interesting offering: a dual-boot tablet. Targeted, perhaps, at the indecisive, the LapTab runs both Windows 8.1 and Android Jelly Bean, so you don't need to permanently commit. The tablet's got a 10.1-inch 1,280 x 800 display and front- and rear-facing 2-megapixel cameras. Inside is a 1.46GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. The tablet goes on sale early next month with a wireless keyboard and an as-of-yet undetermined price.
