The Notion Ink Adam tablet, one of the most hyped tablets which was touted to be one of the iPad’s biggest competitors has been delayed a lot since its original announcement. At one point, it seemed like it would never release and end up as vaporware.
However, the developers have been working on it and are trying to launch it by the end of 2010.
The Notion Ink Adam will run Android 2.2 with a custom UI and will ship with certain improvements in the multitasking capabilities.
It will also come with a custom marketplace christened Genesis, which will offer applications, games and multimedia content as well as ebooks. It will be powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform: a dual core Cortex A9 processor and a ULP GPU.
It will offer Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and comes in two versions: with and without 3G HSDPA. It will also have Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and A-GPS. Besides that, it will have 2 USB ports, microSD slot, HDMI out and a 3.2 MP swivel camera.
You can also choose between LCD and Pixel Qi displays, with the LCD displays being priced at $50 less than the Pixel Qi displays.
There will be 4 versions of the Notion Ink Adam, each priced lower than the cheapest iPad variant. The LCD + Wi-Fi only version will be priced at $399; the LCD + Wi-Fi/3G version at $339; the Pixel Qi + Wi-Fi only version at $449 and the Pixel Qi + Wi-Fi/3G version at $498, just $1 lower than the 16 GB Wi-Fi only iPad. Nice touch, eh?
With many other tablets launching in the same timeframe, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab and HP Palmpad, what remains to be seen is whether or not it will be Adam that gets to eat the Apple.
