The render of Notion Ink’s upcoming Android Tablet looked pretty stunning and now we’re learning more details such as the name (Adam), launch date (June 2010), and price ($321):
Something tells me that “Adam” name won’t stick… but lets hope the June launch date does. The tablet was designed by a company called Notion Ink, founded by 7 Indians who explain the device like so:
“It is a ‘smartpad,’ small enough to be carried anywhere and big enough to do anything.”
Nice try at summing it up, but I’m pretty sure that’s an exaggeration. If you disagree, feel free to try and carry it through any of your body’s orifices and let me know how that goes.
Back to reality: the Adam is 770 grams and .6 inch thick (whoa!) with a 10.1-inch screen. Some more details about the internals and features:
Squeezed into Adam are water, ambient light and proximity sensors, accelerometer, assisted GPS, digital compass, built-in speakers and microphone. However, it will be loaded only with Flash memory (16 or 32 GB) augmented by Secure Digital (SD) card support.
It will have three interfaces: the touch screen, an on-screen virtual keyboard and a track pad located behind the screen, allowing users to manoeuvre the cursor from the front or the rear. A rotatable three megapixel camera at the top can effortlessly take pictures or videos within a 180 degree angle.
The Notion Ink Adam should be on display at CES so cross your fingers that they’ll allow demos… because if so, we’ll be there to test it out.
