Connecting Internet on Funbook Pro with Photon Plus Dongle
Micromax had some time ago introduced the tablet Funbook Pro in India and the tablet is in fact an improved version compared to the earlier Micromax Funbook. FunbookPro is really catchy when it comes to the specification. It has a 1.2 GHz Cortex A8 processor, double the 400 GPU and the Android 4.0.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system running with 1GB DDR3 RAM- a combination that is played strongly for the Tablet PC.
The best thing is FunbookPro offers Tata Photon dongle for a nominal fee of Rs. 500 for which you will also have 2 GB of free data in the first two months (1 GB per month). You can use this to browse internet on your Tab.
And if you are not having any WiFi device nor 3G dongle and want to use normal Tata Photon dongle, then the following steps will help you in that purpose.
