The Notion Ink Adam has spent over a year being one of the most tantalizing new gadgets out there. It was supposed to be the tablet that could do everything, wonderfully, right away. But after a string of delays, how does the real deal measure up? Notion Ink Fan has the first in-depth look we've seen.
The Notion Ink Adam sports an impressive Pixel Qi "transflective" display and latent potential galore, but we haven't really seen much from the delayed tablet/ereader combo this year. With the arrival of this silent demo, however, that changes a bit.
After running the serious risk of looking like vaporware, Notion Ink's prices have been revealed for the Adam tablet, which runs Android on a Tegra chip. Sounds like we'll still have to wait another six or so months, though.
As the tablet market gets even more crowded and competitive (read: Did you see Computex this year?), any delay could effectively end a company's chance at making that all-important first impression. Notion Ink Adam was just delayed until November. Updated.
This is hardly a scientific test. But when an iPad screen and a Pixel Qi faced off head to head recently at Computex in broad daylight, there was one very clear winner. And one very murky "magical" device.
Just because most of us bought iPads doesn't mean that any of you should. There are plenty of devices, out now or coming soon, that can do some things as well—or better. Here's a roundup of the best:
Flash, a longer battery life, outputting video at 1080p, a $1m app competition—these are just some of the ways Notion Ink is hoping its Android-powered Adam tablet will be able to win customers over.
Everybody's talking about tablets, especially those single-pane capacitive touchscreen ones more specifically known as "slates." The iPad is the biggest newsmaker, but there are lots headed our way (most with built-in webcams). Here's how they measure up, spec-wise:
We're only into the second week of the year, but already we've seen thousands of gadgets and gizmos announced, thanks to CES. But what to splurge on? Hopefully our choices this year will help you out in your buying quandaries.
Housed in a wooden, painted prototype case, the Notion Ink Adam tablet is rough. But with Pixel Qi dual-mode screen tech on one arm and Nvidia's Tegra 2 on the other, it's one of the most exciting devices at CES.
