Notion Inks Adam Tablet Detailed Specs:
Notion Ink’s ambitious Adam tablet has been praised heavily for its amazing hardware features as well as the Android Operating System that it runs. In terms of hardware, this less than 1 kg Adam tablet houses dual-core Cortex A9 ARM architecture based NVIDIA Tegra 250 System on Chip with ULP GPU. Packing a 1GB DDR2 RAM with 1GB Single Level Cell memory, it promises faster write speeds at lower power consumption. Adam will also offer 8GB or higher Flash storage on board. The Adam is an Android tablet with a 10.1-inch display. Online sources claim that it runs Eden- an OS that’s a combination of Honeycomb (Android 3.0) and Gingerbread (Android 2.3).
Other hardware features of Adam include 3-Axis Accelerometer, Ambient Light Sensor, GPS, Digital Compass, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, 3.2 megapixel autofocus swiveling camera, built-in microphone, stereo loudspeakers and 3.5mm audio port. For connections, the Adam offers two USB 2.0 ports, min USB port, HDMI and Mini SD card slot. Powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, the tablet features a rotating 3.2MP camera and offers the Pixel Qi touchscreen that blends backlit LCD and e-ink display technology.
Notion Inks Adam Tablet Shipping Date:
However, currently the website states that the Adam variants with the Pixel Qi LCD screen have been sold out. The website also informs that the tablet will be shipped out in “six to eight weeks” which would put the release date sometime in late Jan. 2011 or early-to-mid Feb. 2011.
If you just want to use one tablet casually not exhaustively, then the Blacklit LCD with Wi-Fi option looks pretty promising as compared to other similar low-cost alternate offerings like OlivePad or Samsung Galaxy Tab.
