(Technology News for India) This year, Good news is coming from domestic companies in India like Micromax which, in a CyberMedia report recently published, announced that it has ranked at no.1 in India’s tablet market with a share of about 18.4 % . The quantities speak here, not the actual monetary value of the shipments because Micromax produces low-cost cheap tablets and not high-end expensive tablets as of now. Another good news is that Micromax has expanded its portfolio from being a mobile company to also being electronics company selling LED TV. Yes, Micromax has entered TV and home entertainment segment setting up a manufacturing unit at Rudrapur. I think Micromax is following footsteps of Samsung, releasing new products in wild at a regular frequency, thereby staying regular in press and media as well, also capturing the low-end market with release of budget-friendly mobiles and tablets. If this is any indication, days will not be far when we’ll start seeing Micromax laptops, ultrabooks as well.
