Written By Sam on 2 August 2010

Notion Ink’s tablet, Adam is much awaited because of speculations that it is feature rich device with excellent hardware and multimedia support and is dubbed as one of the iPad competitor. However the clincher for Adam was seen to be the advantage of combining NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform with the Pixel Qi screen. NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform that put together a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, with a clock frequency of 1GHz, guarantees high performance. The Pixel Qi display ensures maximum resolution consuming very little power. A device with enhanced performance and with lower power consumption ensures prolonged battery life. Another unique feature of this display is its operability in low-power, reflective e-paper, sunlight-readable mode as well as a transflective mode. However, there are advanced hardware and software technologies available in the market today, so Notion Ink is trying to enhance its tablet further.

There is a possibility of Notion Ink implementing an advanced OS. It is apparently looking to implement the Android 2.2 OS. However, it seems to have missed the bus yet again, since an advanced version Android 3.0 Gingerbread is likely to hit the markets by the end of this year. However, there are speculations that the tablet can be upgraded to the latest OS.
